LIST 524


Issued 5pm Tuesday 15th March


Shropshire and Herefordshire Watercolours

Robert Bates moved to Shropshire in 1970, finding there a landscape and peaceful way of life conducive to the way he works. His paintings are deeply rooted in the area. But they are far from literal representations. Small, intense and technically demanding, each work is a pursuit to conjure a moment or memory and to convey the experience of a place.
