Eric Rimmington is one of the UK’s most original still life artists. His

virtuosic paintings are characterised by his eclectic choice of objects,

placed apparently at random against a bare studio wall.

The effect is

both beautiful and intriguing. In the words of the art critic William

Packer, ‘Eric Rimmington has become both one of the countrys most

distinguished exponents in the field [of still life painting], and one of the

most particular and distinctive. Eric Rimmington’s exhibition of new

paintings will be on show at Bohun Gallery, Henley-on-Thames, from 8th

to 27th November.

Eric Rimmington studied at the Slade School of Art in London during the 1940s and 50s.

Over the last 50 years he has exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe and the USA.

His work is represented in the Imperial War Museum, the Museum of London, Bradford

City Art Gallery, the Gulbenkian Foundation, Scarborough Art Gallery, the University of

Wisconsin and in many esteemed private collections. There is also a large collection of

his work in the Conservatory and the Grande Salle at Raymond Blanc’s restaurant, Le

Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire.

Eric Rimmington has exhibited regularly at Bohun Gallery since 2001, following eighteen

years of exhibiting in London.
