Richard Spare studied painting at Maidstone College of Art in England from 1971 through 1974. He has continued to produce his own work ever since and has become intensely involved in printmaking.
An experienced printer, Richard had editioned and published work for many contemporary artists, including David Hockney, Robert Ryman, Francesco Clemente, Donald Sultan and Keith Haring. In 1977 he worked with David Hockney as his assistant, building an etching studio for him. It was an interesting time as Richard was able to watch Hockney at work.
Today, Richard concentrates solely on his own work, which derives from nature and travel. His paintings sell through his own gallery, with the originals selling in the $900 - $1200 range.
Spare’s favorite genre is represented in his nature series. This print is a classic example of that work. This is a rare chance to own a work of Richard Spare at an auction price.
