Many of the exhibits at the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition are pieces that make one wonder why anyone would want to buy them. However, this one – the iceberg picture – is not in that category.
It is a painting in acrylics, probably based on a photograph. The full title is “Austere Beauty: Iceberg off Cape Mercy, Baffin Island”.
I could live with this on my wall, and would find it conducive to relieving tension after a difficult day, just by staring at it.
Whether I’d be too happy about paying the asking price of £9,950 is another matter!
Is this the sort of thing you would like on your wall?
