Richard Britell
Trying to Remember the Byzantine: Realistic Oil Painting of Neo-Classical Column

2013

About

Realistic architectural still life painting, oil on canvas vertical oil painting, 70 x 20 x 1.5 inches Mr. Britell's subject matter is drawn from the world of pre-modernist architecture. His focus is on quintessential neo-classical architecture, brick facades, stonework structures and the elegant decorative embellishments that were once a standard feature of the Gothic revival, Neo-classical and other historic styles of American urban architecture. These he depicts with a great deal of photo realist detail. Trying to Remember the Byzantine is a wonderful example of Mr. Britell's meticulous brushwork as he merges motifs from both the Roman and Greek fallen empires.
