Birthdays and anniversaries mark special and important milestones and this rather special Willem Dolphyn exhibition remarkably achieves two. With Willem’s typical style and Burgundian love of life we have Willem’s 80th year neatly coinciding with a very special 30 year anniversary of exhibiting with our gallery.

Willem arrived at Bill Patterson’s door in 1985, kindred spirits struck a chord immediately and a deep friendship began between the two gentlemen.

Over the years the main characters have changed, some old friends sadly departing, but some new friends arriving, and even Willem’s London home has moved. Consistently watching over all this however has been Willem himself. The one solid constant throughout the ever changing times, Willem effortlessly evolving from an energetic quinquagenarian to a lively sexagenarian to a talented septuagenarian to an awesome octogenarian.

Throughout these years, we have all enjoyed Willem’s generosity, his time, his world and his passionate imagination. The quality of his work has been consistently outstanding and inspiring.

In honour and celebration of 80 magnificent years, we have collated together a collection of 80 paintings to illustrate the exceptional talent with which Willem is blessed. We invite you to come and enjoy these masterpieces.

Exhibition: 12 – 27 November 2015 (5 Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge)

Fruits… like having their portrait painted. They seem to sit there and ask your forgiveness for fading. Their thought is given off with their perfumes. They come with all their scents, they speak of the fields they have left, the rain which has nourished them, the daybreaks they have seen. -Paul Cezanne
