Artist's Statement

This is one of several paintings I did about relationships between men and women. In A Woman and two men and A woman and some men, the woman is dominant and central. In Moonlight the two people are nearly equal, though I think that the woman has the edge.

Moonlight by Richard Sorrell

  • Richard Sorrell is a painter of invented figurative paintings – 'people doing things'. His distinctive pictures are reinventions of reality, based on a lifetime of drawing and painting and looking at life. For some years he worked mainly as a landscape, portrait and still life painter, and as a painter of aerial views, mainly of grand houses. He was President of the Royal Watercolour Society from 2006-9, and is also a member of the New English Art Club, the Royal Society of British Artists and the Art Workers Guild.




Virtual Images - Where artworks are shown framed or within a room setting the images have been created using virtual/augmented reality software in some instances. The images are provided to give an idea of the scale of the artwork in the context of a room and the style of the framing. They should not be viewed as completely accurate e.g. the scale and the style/colours of the frame may vary slightly.
