Description

Figures Under Sky by Theodore Major

A dramatic and desolate painting by the late northern art master, Theodore Major.  As art critic John Berger wrote in the New Statesman in 1958, Major’s ‘canvases… deserve to hang among the best English paintings of our time…’ and that is demonstrated clearly with this spectacular painting.

Painted in greys and blacks which were so familiar in his industrial scenes, this particular composition depicts the trudging working class figures making their way across the horizon underneath the dark and threatening clouds.  A sense of toil and forboding is clearly evident and captured so beautifully by Major.  The textures used on the painting are also striking and more pronounced than in some of his paintings, truly one best appreciated in person.
