Philip Harlequin Palmer (British b.1963); "The Grail Quest"; acrylic on paper; signed; glazed and mounted in a wood frame; 20 x 15cm (8 x 6ins) sight (visible image) size, 35.5 x 30.5cm (14 x 12ins) frame dimensions.
A work from the artist's "Avalon Series", many of which have not been exhibited before yet are a central core of the artists production. Over the next few months, we will be exhibiting several works from this series, ranging from small intimate studies to large sweeping canvases. Palmer sums up the spirit of the pictures when he quotes, inspired by Edward Burne-Jones: 'A beautifull world that never was but should have been'.
In the short time we have represented this artist, he has gained an international following of art collectors, several of whom have made repeat purchases of his work.
CONDITION: Excellent, no damage or defects.
