Gouache and Oil Pastel on Paper; Jack Shore RCA
Studio Nude by Jack Shore RCA (1922-2008).
Sumptuous studio nude rendered in Germolene pink gouache with smokey, oil pastel outline. The vibrant orange segment bottom left perfectly contrasts with the turquoise background. Fabulous not just for the composition but for the immediacy of the pastel marks.
Jack Shore was a member of the R.C.A (Royal Cambrian Academy) from 1961 and presided as President of the Academy between 1977 and 1983. He was the friend of other notable artists such as Terry Frost, Kyffin Williams and L.S.Lowry. Shore was head of art at Cheadle Hulme and also taught at Blackpool School of Art. He had a variety of styles and was equally as happy painting studio still life studies, nudes and plein-air landscapes. His work is held in numerous important collections nationwide including Bury Art Museum, Bangor University and Scolton Manor Museum.
