In the Summer of 1918, to celebrate 20 years in print, The Richmond Magazine held an art competition that aimed to depict the borough of Richmond in all its glories.
“Glorious Richmond” attracted hundreds of stunning entries, pouring in from a plethora of talented artists across the borough.
The paintings were exhibited at a 20th birthday celebration in the gorgeous private function room of Royal Mid Surrey Golf Club on June 20.
Paul Stafford’s Highly Commended painting colourfully depicts various aspects of Richmond everyday life – the River Thames, the shops, the park, the transport, the pubs and restaurants – both contemporary and traditional, illustrated through image and typography.
The painting measures 75cm x 100cm and is in acrylics on board. It comprises of 20 individual images, each highlighting a facet of Richmond life and scenery.
The painting would be equally at home in a private residence or an office or reception space.
