Theodore Major

A visit to Clark Art introduced me to the adorably cantankerous  Wigan artist, Theodore Major,  and it was where I fell in love with this:

Man and Sun

Man and Sun

The painting was simply breath taking.  The man himself was quite a character as you can see from this clip of a TV documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6KPkqvNOgs&list=WL&index=53

His work has an incredible air of melancholy about it but not in a way that is depressing.  Somehow, it lifts the spirits. Expect to see more of his work appear on here!

Take a look at some of these: http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/artists/theodore-major
