Basil Blackshaw (Northern Irish, b.1932), The Road to the West (2), 1986. Acrylic on paper, 100 x 67 cm.
I reject this. I also searched his work on Sotheby’s. I reject this is worth 10-15k GBP. His horses were much better. I’m all about capturing the moment and finding great metaphorm but fuck, put some effort into it. Just because you can paint like a 3 year old and sell it for thousands because everyone was on ludes in your heyday does not an artist make.
