Artwork description:

Here is another painting in my most popular ‘Bruegel’ series, depicting characters from some of Bruegel’s great works.
Pieter Brueghel the Elder’s works have inspired many including myself. Bruegel initially worked mainly as a prolific designer of prints produced from his drawings and only in the last decade of his lifetime he switched to painting, particularly specialising in peasants’ everyday life.
I am enamoured by his work and often comparison may be made with my other inspiration Hieronymus Bosch. I have taken sections and characters from Bruegel’s works and made them my own.
This piece is based on Bruegel’s ‘Cutting out the Stone of Madness’. From the late 15th century onwards, cutting for stones in patients' heads to cure mental illness was depicted in European art. The painting depicts the chaotic interior of an asylum or hospital, in which a few procedures are underway simultaneously. In the foreground corner, one of the patients appears to have flipped his chair, to which he is tied, while his tenacious surgeon crawls after him.
Through the relationship between the various elements within the work hints of narrative and representation may emerge.
Perfect for adding a statement piece to living spaces that may create a talking point with visitors.
Executed in good quality oil paints, painted on all sides, and finished with a glaze of gloss varnish to protect against sunlight and dust. It just needs a nail or wall fitting to sit flush against the wall.
You will receive a signed certificate of authenticity.
The painting is 24 x 32 inches, with a depth of 0.6 inches and is on stretched canvas.
All art is professionally packaged to ensure it arrives in perfect condition. My works have been shipped worldwide.
About me:
I am a painter, mostly in oils although I have begun to switch between oils and acrylics.
I love to paint, love colours, shapes’, and textures. I love the idea that a different story can be read into each of my paintings and each viewer may interpret a story different to another.
