Dimensions: 76 x 56 cm
Graham Sutherland was a British painter best known for his Surrealist abstractions of landscapes and figures. Over the course of his career, Sutherland’s aesthetic evolved from a more precise realism to focus on disturbing, thorn-shaped caricatures of the world.
Born on August 24, 1903 in London, United Kingdom, Sutherland went on to study art at Goldsmiths College in London in 1921, where he specialized in engraving. He was particularly inspired by the Romanticist painter Samuel Palmer, along with Paul Nash and Pablo Picasso.
Sutherland participated in the 1952 Venice Biennale. Today, his works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C, the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, and the Dallas Museum of Art, among others.
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
