Original painting SOLD. "Summer 2020, Clifton Suspension Bridge" by Jemal Gugunava, Georgian-born artist based in Bristol and Prague. Picture size: 30(H) x 40(W) x 2(D) cm. The artist used impasto or wet-on-wet technique, where paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick colorful layers. When dry, impasto provides texture; the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas. Rich deep colors!
The Clifton Suspension Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Avon Gorge and the River Avon, linking Clifton in Bristol to Leigh Woods in North Somerset. Since opening in 1864, it has been a toll bridge, the income from which provides funds for its maintenance. The bridge is built to a design by William Henry Barlow and John Hawkshaw, based on an earlier design by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It is a grade I listed building. The idea of building a bridge across the Avon Gorge originated in 1753. Original plans were for a stone bridge and later iterations were for a wrought iron structure. In 1831, an attempt to build Brunel's design was halted by the Bristol riots, and the revised version of his designs was built after his death and completed in 1864 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clifton_Suspension_Bridge
