One of our most niche commissions to date was a portrait of a modern 1950s church in North London.
The client, the church’s vicar, had seen the 2015 FBA exhibition The Painted Parish online and was inspired to commission an artist to paint his own place of worship. Mall Galleries art advisors put together a portfolio of possible artists and Peter Vincent PS was chosen. Peter had previously been commissioned by us to paint the Royal Automobile Club’s Art Deco swimming pool, therefore seemed a perfect fit for a 20th-century building portrait.
The resulting pastel works, two paintings of the interior and exterior, were a memento of the exchange between a reverend and an artist in the shadow of a modernist church.
