Harry Steen: Recent Paintings, Jonathan Cooper, Park Walk Gallery, 20 Park Walk, London SW10, 5th – 28th November 2015
Round Room, by Harry Steen. Oil on board, 18 x 16ins (45.7 x 40.6cm)
This painting caught my eye among the sixteen new works on show in this new exhibition by the Canadian artist Harry Steen. His inspiration for it was the Music Room in the Pavillon de Musique de Madame which was built for the Comtesse de Provence (Louis XVI’s sister-in-law) near Versailles in 1780.
Steen is a painter of style, elegance and imagination as this show amply proves.
