About the work

This drawing is maybe an industrial or natural seascape.

About the artist:

Born 1944 Newcastle upon Tyne, Phyllida Barlow lives and works in London. Studied at Chelsea School of Art (1960-1963); and Diploma in Fine Art, Slade School of Fine Art (1963 -1966).

For more than 50 years, British artist Phyllida Barlow has taken inspiration from her surroundings to create imposing installations that can be at once menacing and playful. She creates anti-monumental sculptures from inexpensive, low-grade materials such as cardboard, fabric, plywood, polystyrene, scrim and cement. These constructions are often painted in industrial or vibrant colours, the seams of their construction left at times visible, revealing the means of their making. After joining the staff in the 1980s, Barlow taught at the Slade School of Art for more than twenty years before retiring in 2009 and is now Emerita Professor of Fine Art.

Selected solo exhibitions include a survey presentation at Haus der Kunst, Munich (2021); cul-de-sac, The Royal Academy of Arts, London (2019); Phyllida Barlow: folly, La Biennale di Venezia, British Pavilion, Venice (2017); ARTIST ROOMS: Phyllida Barlow, Turner Contemporary, Margate (2017); and demo, Kunsthalle Zürich (2016).

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July.

This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
