Pick of the week

Country Life Every Week - - Art Market -

Me­gan Piper, one of Lon­don’s young gal­lerists to watch, con­cen­trates on over­looked artists of the 1960s. Her cur­rent show, ‘Stair­cases and Fig­ures’, is of large paint­ings by Neil Stokoe (born 1935), an RCA con­tem­po­rary of Caulfield, Hock­ney, and Ki­taj. Run­ning to Fe­bru­ary 24, it will be her last at Har­ris Lind­say in Jermyn Street, SW1, be­fore mov­ing to a nearby space in Bury Street. Mr Stokoe is cur­rently fas­ci­nated by stairs, say­ing: ‘Their great va­ri­ety of shapes and forms al­most makes them the ar­chi­tec­tural equiv­a­lent of trees.’ The most re­cent work, how­ever, is a dou­ble-por­trait on a sofa, in mem­ory of his friend­ship with Fran­cis Ba­con.
