Product story

The limited edition print continues The Miserable Lives of Fabulous Artists series by Chris Orr, which to date includes around 28 unique works on paper. The artist’s eclectic range of subjects includes some of the great names from art history, including among others, Vincent van Gogh, Edward Hopper and Jackson Pollock, all of whom he depicts using his own characteristically humorous visual language.

With extraordinary attention to detail, Orr portrays each artist in a scenario that elaborates inventively around well-known elements of their life and art. In Orr’s own words, ‘Leonora Carrington imagined people as untamed beasts. As a student I read her short stories and shoved them to the back of my mind. I rediscovered them in 2017 and found that I had, unbeknown to myself, been using elements of them in my work for years.’

All proceeds from sales of this work go directly to support the non-profit-making areas of the Royal Academy, particularly the RA Schools.
