Corsica (French: Corse) is an island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the 18 regions of France. It is located southeast of the French mainland and west of the Italian Peninsula, with the nearest land mass being the Italian island of Sardinia to the immediate south. A single chain of mountains makes up two-thirds of the island. More on CorsicaArchie Forrest was born in Glasgow in 1950. He attended Glasgow School of Art between 1969 and 1973 prior to becoming a tutor there for seven years. In 1985, he gave up his teaching so that he could devote his time to painting. Forrest was elected a Member of the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts in 1988 and has been a regular exhibitor there and at the Royal Scottish Academy since 1975. He has won numerous awards for both his painting and sculpture. Examples of his work can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.

Forrest is essentially viewed as a colourist working in the subdued earthy harmonies of the Glasgow school. Cézanne and Matisse are major inspirations to the artist. More on Archie Forrest

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
