The Belle Époque Today: The Art of Bill Jacklin, RA

Broadway Encounter III
Bill Jacklin, RA
Royal Academician Bill Jacklin began his painting career in the 1960’s--focused primarily on abstraction.  In the 1970’s the artist began to show more of a figurative approach to his painting and demonstrated a masterful ability to convey a sense of motion through light.  With numerous important commissions to his credit, in 1985, Jacklin left England for New York where he continues to paint scenes of urban life—capturing fleeting moments of great drama which he manages to convey through his superb handling of light and shadow.  For more information about this excellent artist, visit his Web site.
