Title: Lunch on the Grass
Artist: Andrew Smith
Date of Work: 1989
Medium: painting : oil
Dimensions: 270mm x 350mm
Caption: In this wittily-titled painting, Andrew Smith is doing what he likes best, observing and recording his fellow man and woman in social situations. These pictures, which are painted in thick impasto on thin card, concentrate on the facial expressions of his subjects, much as Edward Burra or George Grosz would. Smith records, but does not judge. That is left to the viewer.
