Arthur Maderson

Arthur K. Maderson (b.1942)
Arthur Maderson studied at the Camberwell School of Art, London, from 1959-1963. In 1963 he won the Anna Berry Award in open competition with all final year art graduates. Maderson is primarily concerned with the depiction of light - a similar preoccupation of the nineteenth century French Impressionists. He has adopted some of the same techniques as the Impressionists, using broken brush strokes of thickly applied paint and vibrant juxtapositions of colour. He has tended to concentrate on one particular thematic series at a time, the most notable being the Lismore River series and Tallow Horse Fair series. He exhibits regularly at the RA and the RHA and has been an award winner at the latter. Recently Maderson was included in a list of 17 of the world's most successful and popular figurative painters in the book Modern Oil Impressionists by Ron Hanson.
