This beautifully painted study taken from a drawing visit to Rome, Italy is part of the “Fragment” series of works and illustrates the fascination that Ian Murphy has with the intimate compositional ideas and, possibly more importantly, the subtle rendering of light across the surfaces. A simple design is enhanced by the directional shadow moving from the central area to the bottom right hand corner.
