About the artist: 

Harry Holland is widely regarded as one of Britain’s finest figurative artists. Using classical techniques to realise his contemporary figurative paintings, Harry incorporates motifs such as mythology and pathos to imbue his work with an enigmatic timelessness.

Born in Glasgow in 1941 he spent his childhood in various parts of the UK settling in London in 1949.  He trained at St. Martin’s School of Art from 1965-69 where he first exhibited in 1969.  In 1973 he moved to Cardiff where he lives and paints today.

His work is held at: Tate, London; Metropolitan Museum, New York; National Portrait Gallery, Canada; European Parliament Collection; National Museum and Galleries of Wales; British Museum, London; Belgian National Collection; Contemporary Art Society; Arts Council of Wales; Contemporary Art Society for Wales; BBC Wales.
