At The Close of a Summer's Day, Fanad, Co. Donegal (1995)


Robert Bottom, who comes from Cambridge, studied fine art at Canterbury College of Art and filmmaking at Newport, Gwent. Head of the art department at Campbell College in Belfast from 1975 to 1995, he now paints as a full-time career. He has been exhibiting in mixed shows since 1973 and has had several one-man exhibitions since 1972, in Belfast, Dublin, Sligo and New York. His work is represented in public collections in Belfast and Dublin and in private collections in America, Australia, Canada and elsewhere. This atmospheric landscape, executed with wide vigorous brushstrokes, is painted in muted tones evocative of the fading light at the end of a long summer's day.
