[edit] Information

John Virtue is a landscape artist who’s worked solely in black and white since 1978, creating paintings that are a mixture of realistic and abstraction. Some are on a monumental scale (e.g. Landscape No 710 is just over 3x6 metres -- his paintings are all numbered, rather than having names).

This film is on his time as associate artist the London National Gallery, where he was invited by the gallery to create paintings in response to the gallery’s collection, but ended up created a series of London landscapes. He talks to Paul Moorhouse, Senior Curator at the Tate, about the works he’s produced during this time, about his working process and routines, about the importance of accurate drawings of the landscape, about his favourite paintings in the National Gallery.
