A fantastic example of Richard Smiths work and intaglio printing in general, this piece needs to be seen to be appreciated. The image rises up from the paper and stands pronounced from the background.

Proscenium, in the theatre, is the frame or arch separating the stage from the auditorium, through which the action of a play is viewed.

The Artist

Richard Smith

Richard Smith, CBE is an English painter and printmaker born in October 1931. His work spanned a range of styles, but he is most often linked with colour field painting. During his early years, Smith attended the St Albans School of Art and studied at the Royal College of Art from 1954 to 1957. A lot of Smith’s earlier work focused on themes of packaging and advertising which drew parallels from many critics to the Pop Art movement. He was a lecturer at Hammersmith College of Art from 1957 to 1958 and in 1959 moved to America where he spent many years painting and teaching, particularly in New York.
