Graphite on Canvas


'Winifred' Oil on Canvas 100x100cm

Artist's comment:

'Winifred’ or ‘Winnie’, yes as in 'The Pooh’. This storybook cow is one of the Lewis herd that grazes on the pasture next to the tiny (and short) Lullington humpback bridge. The bridge is known locally as ‘Longbridge’, even though it really is very very short. 

Winnie is of no identifiable breed - the amazing colour and markings are unique - the result of the cheapest available hired bull - not joking, I asked the farmer.'

John achieved overnight success in the 90’s for his bold paintings of cows; a subject which has remained his single focus ever since and earned him international recognition as ‘the cow man’. Light is often used to accentuate composition and backgrounds are ever changing. His fresh approach to each work has established a growing collection of powerful work. John has exhibited widely throughout the UK and internationally.

This painting is framed in the artist's signature bespoke black wooden frame. Please allow approx 6.5cm to each side of the 100x100cm canvas size.
