Richard Adams - The Countryside Banquet

Born in Hampshire in 1960, Richard Adams is acclaimed for his vivid, humourous paintings in a longstanding English tradition of eccentric visionary art encompassing artists like Richard Dadd and Stanley Spencer). His prize-winning pictures (first prize in 1986 in both the Benson and Hedges and Readers Digest painting competitions) celebrate timeless rural and coastal idylls in Britain and America - with close attention paid to idiosyncratic, often delightfully bizarre details of life in villages, farms and manor houses.
