Tony Blair

Oil on Canvas

75cm x 75cm



"Its impact is formal – a splash of colour that invigorates the painting. But it also reads symbolically – a commemoration of the dead from two world wars, but equally those who had died in the Iraq War and Blair and Bush’s nebulous War on Terror… Here in a few vivid red brushstrokes was a symbol of hope, victory, fragility, responsibly and death."

Tim Marlow, Director of Artistic Programmes at The Royal Academy of Arts, 2013. From The Many Faces of Jonathan Yeo
