Richard Britell
Six Windows, Myrtle Ave (Photo-Realist Oil Painting of Classic NYC Red Building)

2019

$2,400

About

Photo-realist oil painting of a classic red brick building exterior in New York City Oil on linen mounted on panel in a handmade walnut frame 10 x 27 x 2 inches framed Wire backing for seamless hanging This contemporary, realistic oil painting of a New York City brick building exterior was painted by Richard Britell in 2019. Employing his mastery of the troupe l'oeil technique, Britell paints the bright red brick building in extreme detail assuming a three-dimensional quality with close attention paid to shadow and perspective. Located on Myrtle Avenue, this building is reminiscent of neo-classical architecture, popularized in the late 1800's. The striking red exterior contrasts against the soft orange and black stone window trims, further accentuating the painting's troupe l'oeil qualities. The painting is on wood panel and framed in a custom, artist made walnut frame with wire on the back for seamless 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.
