Adrian Gottlieb’s work shows the effect of his training in Florence under both Charles Cecil and Daniel Graves. The emphasis on on light effect through a deep chiaroscuro, built on solid drawing, give a strong naturalistic result. A very limited colour palette keeps the emphasis on tonal relationships.
Gottlieb is clearly a man who has set out to master his craft, to become a true draughtsman. And his dedication shows. I will be interested to see where his work leads in years to come.
