The Barton Collection is composed of a collection of contemporary art by artists who have a connection in any way with the work of Richard Lee Barton, on the other hand from a collection of works by a rich array of artists and periods, coincidentally or purchased aware to enrich the collection.
These are mainly paintings, but unfortunately recently deceased Belgian sculptor Gerard Bijnens is also represented in the collection.
De Barton Collection bestaat
enerzijds uit een verzameling hedendaagse kunst van kunstenaars die
op enigerlei wijze een connectie hebben met het werk van Richard
Lee Barton, anderzijds uit een verzameling werken van een rijk
scala aan kunstenaars en periodes, toevalligerwijs of bewust
aangeschaft om de verzameling te verrijken.
Het gaat hoofdzakelijk om schilderkunst, maar de onlangs helaas overleden Belgische beeldhouwer Gerard Bijnens, is ook vertegenwoordigd in de collectie.
Painting has been a large part of my life for the past 40 years. I still enjoy it and am always happy to share my visual message with people around the world.
One of the things that keeps me going is to know that many people enjoy my work in their homes and offices everyday.
My style of painting has developed over the years and is original in the way I handle the paint. This is done in a way that invites others to use their own creativity – looking at my work, in a way they interpret and experience the mood of a painting.
Many people tell me its an uplifting experience and that they never get tired of viewing my imagery, because it never gets boring and that they continue to discover new facets of the painting surface and the use of colour.
Should you have questions, need to know a price of a painting, want to discuss an exhibition, or just talk about art feel free to drop me a line.
We can answer all requests in English, Dutch, Flemish, French, or German.
I wish you a positive viewing experience and look forward to hearing from you.
Richard Lee Barton
