Albert Irvin awarded OBE

We are delighted to hear that our long-time client and friend Albert Irvin has been awarded an OBE in the 2013 birthday honours list! The British colourist is not only an innovative and widely influential abstract painter, at 90 years young he is also a true inspiration to the art world. Bert, as he is affectionately known to friends and family, has had a dramatic career spanning seven decades, and the same drive to paint and re-define his artistic ‘language’ still pushes him to work as a full-time artist today. Albert has been painting upon canvas fabric and stretcher bars produced in the John Jones workshops since the 1980's and is still a regular client. Albert’s work can currently be seen in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. For more information on his practice, please click here to read an interview.
