Michael Strang

Our dear friend and artist Michael Strang sadly passed away in April this year (2021). We are working closely with his family and are honoured as a gallery to continue to represent his work. As one of the first artists to join the Summerhouse when we opened in 2011, his beautiful paintings feel very much part of all we do. And it is a pleasure

to have them gracing our walls. 

 

Michael Strang  -19 -  2021

 

Michael Strang is one of England’s best-loved current painters, with work exhibited in private collections both in the UK and internationally.

A young Michael Strang was a student at both Camberwell and Wimbledon in the golden years of 1968–73, graduating with a BA with Honours.

Primarily an oil painter who has continually been celebrated for his ability to capture the magic of a country scene, Michael's plein air seascapes of Porthmeor beach were included in the Tate’s ‘Century of Images’ exhibition in 1995, which catapulted him into recognition as a modern day master of romantic impressionism. His work has since been included in many prestigious collections, including The Royal Academy and Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum. 

We were delighted to hold a retrospective for Michael here at The Summerhouse in the Summer of 2015, and have long enjoyed a close working relationship with him through which we have displayed some utterly breath-taking pieces.

Michael is truly a man who lives to paint, and the passion for his craft is evident within each of his pieces. Whether it be the magic of a distinctive sunset or the energy that fuels a vibrant field of poppies, Strang’s unique and instantly recognisable textured brush technique demonstrates a talent which makes him one of the most reputable painters of the moment, and widely regarded as Britain’s best living impressionist painter.
