Stan Smith - the human figure - Girl on a train (homage to Augustus Egg)
Stan’s Smith’s contemporary take on Travelling Companions, the famous Victorian painting by Augustus Egg of two finely dressed young ladies in a first class compartment.
Stan’s subject is a modern girl, travelling alone in less plush surroundings.
Very few of Stan Smith’s large oil paintings have recently appeared on the open market. Pictures that sold for more than £5,000 during his lifetime remain firmly in the hands of those who bought them. We believe that more people should have the opportunity to own and enjoy his work - at prices they can afford.
