Richard Britell
September 10, 11 East 71: Architectural Oil Painting Realistic Building Exterior

2013

$6,000

About

30 x 40 inches horizontal photo realist oil painting on canvas of neo-classical architecture Mr. Britell's subject matter is drawn from the world of pre-modernist architecture. What he focuses on are brick facades, stonework structures and the elegant decorative embellishments that were once a standard feature of the gothic revival, neo-classical and other historicist styles of American urban architecture. The artist depicts this subject with a great deal of photo realist precision and pictorial force. This painting of architectural details on a New York City Neo-classical historical building is a wonderful example of Mr. Britell's trompe l'oeil approach to realism. Edges of the canvas are finished so a frame is not required. 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.
