Regular price R 150.00

He began teaching at the Royal College of Art in 1947 and was professor of painting there from 1967 until his retirement in 1973. Weight was something of a maverick figure (‘I don't like the art world very much. I don't like the dealers and I don't like the critics’) and his work is highly individual. His best-known paintings are imaginative figure compositions, set in suburban surroundings. They are superficially realistic, but feature idiosyncratic perspective effects and strange human dramas, producing a feeling that is sometimes humorous and sometimes menacing: ‘My art is concerned with such things as anger, love, fear, hate and loneliness, emphasized by the ordinary landscape in which the dramatic scene is set.
