Lincoln Seligman

A short introduction

A British artist, born in 1950, Seligman has gained an international reputation for his large-scale sculptures and murals that can be found in many landmark buildings worldwide. When not creating abstract sculptures he concentrates full time on painting. His visual travelogue depicts images from Provence, Brittany and Tuscany, northern India and Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Kenya, New York and New England, parts of China as well as the Cotswold countryside. When not traveling, Lincoln divides his time between studios in the Cotswolds and London.

Seligman’s work, which is noted for its use of vibrant color, is varied, ranging from large-scale canvases of landscapes, a series of what he calls winescapes – in which he uses bottles and wine cases to create quasi-abstract compositions – to peaceful images of monks at the Abbey of Sant’Antimo monastery near Paganico.

Seligman has exhibited in London (a one-man show at the Royal Academy in 2007) and New York and his paintings can be found in many important public collections including the New York Public Library, the European Parliament, the Royal Palace, Riyadh, Standard Chartered Bank, Flemings, Chanel and Laurent Perrier. Two important recent commissions include a gigantic hanging sculpture in Phoenix City, Beijing, for the Chinese government in 2011, and set designs for the New English Ballet Theatre’s Bright Young Things at Sadler’s Wells in July this year. Seligman also holds annual painting courses in Sri Lanka and Kenya.

Seligman’s show, “An artist at large,” was presented by Penrose Fine Art in 2012 and it was a very successful exhibition. Eaton Collection currently has the opportunity exclusively to present his art works to our clients in China. Please find his available work on our Eaton Contemporary Lincoln Seligman web page.
