Sir Robin Philipson

Cathedral Interior, Remembrance

About this artwork

This work dates from the same period as Philipson's angst-ridden war paintings. As with his Mexican altar pictures of the 1960s, ‘Cathedral Interior, Remembrance’ developed the themes of the rose window and interior spaces. Philipson said: “What impressed me about the Venetian churches - San Marco above all - was a sense of their beautifully lit spaces. They gave me a great desire to recreate all their visual aspects simultaneously, taking in their inspired intricate rhythms and richly saturated colour.”
