Albert Irvin (1922-2015)
Avenue, 1987
Gouache on paper
55.9 x 76.2 cm (image)

Albert Irvin OBE RA was best known for his exuberant paintings, watercolours and gouaches that reinvigorated painting in Britain in the 70s and 80s. His works exude an absolute joyfulness, both in their riotous colours and the energy of their marks. Like Kelly, his service during the war as an RAF navigator, is said to be a great influence on his work, with the paintings’ criss-crossing grids of sweeping, fluid lines often linked to the aerial views of the landscape he would see.
