‘George Large is the most astute watcher of our shared experience, of the exotica of the ordinary… He weaves his insights into rich figurative tapestries, a realm with which we may be superficially familiar, but which is re-made in his imagination, a place apart.’ David Whiting, 2015.

‘His complex compositions, bursting with vitality and primary idiosyncratic colours, which ingeniously knit together the figurative and the topographical, always delight my critical eye.’ Anthony J. Lester, 1998.
George Large PortraitGeorge Large was born at Islington, London in 1936 and went on to study art at Hornsey College of Art from 1958-63. Large is a member of the Royal Society of British Artists and in 1986 he was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours. Three years later he won the Winsor & Newton Award and his work is represented in several important public collections.

Human figures are important components in Large’s compositions, often men at work, and the work of Edward Burra and Stanley Spencer has been influential upon Large’s art. He has held several solo exhibitions and was commissioned to do a mural for Kings Cross Thameslink Station. In recent years he has lived and painted in Rutland and Malta.
