Richmond Atelier

Christian Furr's new painting of Goya at the Prado

Richmond Atelier is proud to host the new painting by Christian Furr before it is shipped to New York at the end of January 2020.

Furr, who is the youngest artist to have painted Queen Elizabeth II after being chosen by Her Majesty for the commission, visited the Prado Gallery in Madrid and painstakingly recreated a gallery room full of paintings by the Spanish Master Goya.

The oil painting, which measures 88 x 55 inches, took roughly three months to create from photographs which Furr took last year on a private visit to gallery, when no public were present.

The result is a totally original and somewhat hypnotic 'tromp l'oeil' style work where portraits from the past of the Spanish Royal court have been repainted in skewed perspective along with the impressive and dimly lit gallery space of the Prado itself.
