WILLIAM GOODRIDGE ROBERTS, R.C.A
oil on canvas
24 ins x 18 ins; 61 cms x 45.7 cms
A master of volume and scale, Goodridge Roberts’ profound skill at being able to render objects accurately, serves to liberate and encourage the committed observer to move beyond the obvious appeal of Still Life to consider the plastic accomplishment of this painter: colour, brushwork and composition.
