Theodore Major Original Painting
Original oil on board painting by the late great Wigan artist Theodore Major.
One of Major’s haunting and rare figurative subjects, the figure looks serene and calm whilst the darkness of the background appears to envelope the foreground figure. A striking composition executed using a heavy oil technique.
This incredibly impactful painting is signed on the reverse by Major and comes complete with a dedication from the artist’s daughter Mary Major to the previous owner who was the late Rabbi and journalist, Lionel Blue OBE.
The painting also features in the artist’s house in one of the Theodore Major documentary videos and is supplied with an image of the piece in Lionel Blue’s home.
