Fatal Allegations by Richard Shirley Smith

Fatal Allegations

Artist: Richard Shirley Smith

457 x 609mm
18 x 24ins

Although at one level it appears to be a representational painting of a Venetian scene it could only occur in a dream. There is an obvious debt to the Venetian painter Longhi, particularly his masked balls and conversation pieces of a decaying Patrician society. But here there is allegory, humour and overtones of surrealism.
