Hackney Empire Ink & Watercolour

Richard Beer (1928-2017)

An original watercolour and ink painting of Hackney Empire, which looks to be a preparatory work that the artist did for his etching ‘Hackney Empire i’ which we have for sale also. 

The painting is unsigned, but dated Tuesday May 7.  The artist has annotated the work with the names of colours in a couple of places.

One of his first earners as an artist was designing stage sets for the theatre, and throughout his life, Beer was inspired by the grandeur of architecture. 

Provenance: from the estate sale of the late Richard Beer 


Measurements: 39 x 53 cm sheet size
