Jose Escofet

José Escofet was born near Barcelona in 1930, and spent much of his early

career working as a graphic designer whilst painting 'fine art' in his own time.

He moved to England with his British wife and three children in 1979. The

softness of the northern light brought about a substantial change in his work.

With a deep awareness of both Spanish and Dutch still-life and flower painting

from earlier centuries, Escofet progressed from the late 1980's into a highly

productive period painting impressively refined, sophisticated flower subjects

of great richness. He has had numerous solo exhibitions in both London and

New York, and his work is in many important Private collections in the USA

and Europe. This exhibition includes some twenty works which can only be

described as world class.
