Bratby, John (English)
1928 - 1992


Thistles in a jug, oil on canvas, unsigned,
18" x 14" unframed.

About the Painting: Very good condition. The old stretcher bears a stenciled number - probably affixed by an auctioneer. An outstanding British Modern painting.

About the Artist:
Born in London, Bratby was a painter, novelist, and teacher. He studied at Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art and was a prolific exhibitor throughout his life - painting over 1,500 portraits alone by 1991 when the National Portrait Gallery staged a retrospective of his work. "Bold images, thick paint and primary colors were Bratby's trademarks. He was elected RA in 1971." - source Buckman, Artists in Britain Since 1945.
