David Gentleman (born 1930)

Wolfson College, Oxford (1976)



33 x 46 cm

A view of Wolfson College by David Gentleman. The modernist college emerges from between lush greenery and a bright blue sky.

Gentleman produced this view in 1975, and it was published a year later in the “Oxford Almanack”. The Oxford Almanack was an annual almanac published by the Oxford University Press for the University of Oxford from 1674 through 2019 (when printing sadly ceased due to “dwindling interest”). The almanac traditionally included engravings or lithographs of the University and information about the upcoming year. Other almanac artists have included James Basire, Michael Burghers, J. M. W. Turner, and John Piper.

David Gentleman is an English artist. He studied art and painting at the Royal College of Art under Edward Bawden and John Nash, and produced several views of Oxford colleges for the Oxford Almanac.

Condition: very good.
