Meredith Frampton

To piggyback on yesterday's post, I've included a few more paintings by British artist Meredith Frampton. I really love the vibrant, saturated use of color and their flat, child-like quality. Don't the female subjects seem like the epitome of glamour? I want to wear what they're wearing. Even the unclothed woman. She wears nudity so well!

They are real in a surreal way... I think I have to got to the Tate collection. Thanks for the tip!
