The internationally renowned Wirral born artist Christian Furr, is returning this autumn for a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum.
Christian Furr: A Retrospective will be the first time that the Wirral Met College alumnus’ artworks will have been shown together in one place.
In 1995, aged 28, Christian Furr became the youngest artist to paint HM Queen Elizabeth II after being commissioned by Royal Overseas League – a print of which will be included in the exhibition.
Furr’s successive works have adorned the walls of the Saatchi Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Royal Society of Portrait Painters and the private collection at the Vatican.
This new exhibition charts his early interests in learning from the figurative tradition and features examples of his more recent collaborations with other artists. A new self-portrait will also be unveiled for the show.
