Robert Tuson 20th Century Artist. British School. The Alcove. Still Life study, witch's ball, porcelain vase, rose and bible. Oil on Board. An accomplished painting by Robert Tuson. Signature lower right. Titled on a label verso.
Little is written about this artist. His known works date between the 1950s and 1960s. Several of his works are in the collection of Manchester Art Gallery, Salford Art Gallery and Derby Museum and Art Gallery.
In this painting titled The Alcove. Tuson has used a very low key limited palette almost, but not quite, monochromatic. The composition is simple, kept to just a few items each painted in superb detail, none obviously standing out as the main focal point. A very calm painting almost a cross between Photo Realism and Surrealism.
