Rowan Barnes-Murphy is an artist whose name you might not recognise, but you may well be familiar with his work.
During a successful career as an illustrator he has produced iconic work for (among others) the Royal Shakespeare Company, the BBC, The Savoy Hotel and Moet & Chandon. His drawings can regularly be found in leading newspapers and magazines all over the world, and he has created characters for books published by major publishing houses.
Now he has turned his attention to Poundbury, in a series of pictures which can be seen for the first time in our exhibition at the gallery from November 11, which will also include Rowan’s distinctive limited-edition prints of birds and animals.
PS: Rowan has also made quite a name for his house portraits, which he undertakes by commission. If the idea of an artist’s impression of your home (or holiday home) appeals to you, ask us for contact details…
