In his mid-eighties Philip Sutton RA still paints and draws every day as he has all his life. His work is full of bright colour, painted with a freedom and clarity reminiscent of Matisse but entirely his own. His subject matter varies from landscapes, flowers, portraits and nudes but is always treated with wonder, and made wonderful by his brush. As The Times art critic John Russell Taylor wrote, ‘All you need to understand and appreciate Philip Sutton is a lively eye and open mind. You do not have to make your way painfully towards him: his art will welcome you with open arms.’
