Abstract Architectural Study by Richard Sladden

Vintage Original Gouache on Paper Painting ‘Vitra’ by Richard Sladden.

Sladden (1933-2020) originally trained as an Architect at the RWA (Royal West of England Academy) he later moved into sculpture and then abstract painting always being influenced by modernist architecture.
