Richard Britell
71 Clinton (Photo-Realist Oil Painting of NYC Light Beige Brick Building)



oil on wood in artist made frame 12 x 18 inches $1,800 This contemporary, realistic oil painting of a New York City building was painted by Richard Britell in 2017. Employing his mastery of the troupe l'oeil technique, Britell paints the light beige brick building in extreme detail assuming a three-dimensional quality with close attention paid to shadow and perspective. Located in Manhattan's Lower East Side, this building is a quintessential example of Classical Revival architecture. The highlights in the light brick contrast against the black window frames and fire escapes, further accentuating the painting's troupe l'oeil qualities. The painting on wood is framed in a custom artist made wood frame with wire on the back for instant hanging. About the artist: Richard Britell, a career painter, studied at Pratt Institute with Philip Pearlstein and Walter Erlebacher. His first show in NYC at Staempfli Gallery was sold out, and reviewed in the New York Times. Britell’s new works revolve around large, dreamy cityscapes tending toward abstraction. The artist currently lives in Pittsfield, MA. The artist is represented by Carrie Haddad Gallery. Celebrating 25 years representing artists of the Hudson Valley and beyond, Carrie Haddad Gallery hosts 7 exhibits a year featuring painting, photography, mixed media and large and small sculpture.
