Thérèse Oulton studied at St Martin's School of Art and the Royal College of Art between 1975 and 1983 and has held solo exhibitions every year since then. She evolved techniques of brushwork from a critical study of Old Master painting but she controls her application of paint by a discipline related to recent conceptual art. The resulting images suggest a multiplicity of possible interpretations and often evoke, intentionally, the great art of the past, in particular the sublime landscape tradition. This is the first painting by Oulton to enter the collection of the Tate.
