Delivery & returns information
Senior Academician Leonard McComb is renowned for his still-lifes, landscape and portraiture work, all of which he interprets as a form of self-portrait. Throughout his life he has travelled widely, particularly in Cyprus and the south of France. His work is led and informed by the close relationships he has forged over time, be they with friends made while abroad or among the market traders of Billingsgate, London. McComb, who is passionate about working from life, has entitled this detailed etching of oleanders – which are showy, but toxic – in homage to one of his artist heroes.
All proceeds from sales of this work go directly to support the non-profit-making areas of the Royal Academy, particularly the RA Schools.
