Anthony Eyton RA, whose practice has always included the painting of still-lifes, has a particular fascination with the formation of standing stones such as Stonehenge. Stones on a Mantelpiece also gives ‘a salute’ to the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi (1890–1964) who specialised in subtly tonal still-lifes of jugs and vases. Eyton’s own collection of small stones was gathered by a family member from ‘all around the globe’. The vertical form in the middle of the composition is a small, lead, female figure, a Dutch toy from around 1900, which the artist found ‘captivating close-to’. It is presented among a number of Eyton’s dynamic new paintings that explore in detail the collapse of some shelving in his studio.
