Lot Essay

‘I’ve been influenced by historic painters who share a certain devil-may-care mode of working, who were not so concerned with formal perfection or academic rules, but with the physicality of paint, the act of painting, the life that they knew and how they could make it tangible through paint – people like Édouard Manet, Walter Stickert and Francisco Goya’
(L. Yiadom-Boakye, quoted in Lynette Yiadom-Boakye: Any Number of Preoccupations, exh. cat., The Studio Museum Harlem, New York, 2011, p. 20).
