The Artist formerly known as Prince

There have been a number of posts on social media employing this quip.

On the other hand it is really worth remembering that King Charles III is an artist who is a eager painter in watercolours and who exhibits his paintings on a frequent foundation. 

He is also a Patron of drawing, traditional artwork and crafts in unique areas both equally in the Uk and overseas.

I don’t forget when Prince Philip died I built reference in Prince Philip (1921-2021) – the painter to his fascination in painting.  I guess this curiosity must have influenced his son. I am hoping it passes on to far more of his progeny.

Down below you can find out far more about his pursuits – when Prince of Wales in phrases of: 

  • watercolour painter
  • timeline of exhibitions
  • patron of artwork

Watercolour Painter

As a Prince, he painted from childhood. 

On the other hand he did not grow to be dedicated to plein air portray of landscapes and mother nature in watercolour until the mid 1980s. Soon after which he generated paintings of locations he visited and generally created about 30 paintings just about every yr.

He has, up until now, painted less than the title A.G Carrick. The A. G. relates to two of his names ‘Arthur George’ and the Carrick references a person of his titles ‘Earl of Carrick’ – a single of the Scottish titles held by the Heir Apparent.  I feel I’m appropriate in indicating that he has ordinarily signed his watercolours AG. 

On the other hand he’s no lengthier the Earl of Carrick as that title has now passed to his son! 

I ponder if becoming King might suggest we no for a longer time see his watercolours even if he continues to paint them.

Timeline of Exhibitions

This is a timeline of some of the solo exhibitions of his work

“I took up painting entirely due to the fact I uncovered photography much less than enjoyable. Rather merely, I seasoned an mind-boggling urge to convey what I noticed by the medium of watercolour and to express that almost ‘inner’ perception of texture which is not possible to obtain by way of images. I very promptly learned how very challenging it is to paint properly in these kinds of a spontaneous medium, and the experience of disappointment at not currently being ready to reach on paper the image that your eye has presented you with is powerful!

“Looking back now at these to start with sketches I did, I am appalled by how bad they are. But, nevertheless, the terrific thing about painting is that you are earning your very own particular person interpretation of what ever check out you have picked. Mainly because it obliges you to sit down and make a cautious observation of the selected matter, you find out so much additional about it than by just pointing a digital camera and arriving at a outcome which is in all probability pretty much similar to someone else’s photograph. As a final result, you come to be ever more knowledgeable of matters that could have escaped your consideration previously – factors like the top quality of light and shade, of tone and texture and of the shape of structures in relation to the landscape. It all needs the most intense concentration and, for that reason, is a single of the most relaxing and therapeutic routines I know. In actuality, in my circumstance, I discover it transports me into one more dimension which, really actually, refreshes parts of the soul which other functions can’t reach…

I am under no illusion that my sketches represent excellent artwork or a burgeoning expertise! They signify for me, more than just about anything else, my individual kind of ‘photograph album’ and, as this kind of, necessarily mean a wonderful offer to me “

I’m confident several of us will recognise these sentiments. I know it’s very a lot the way I sense about my possess sketches and sketchbooks. They just take me back again to a position superior than any photograph can.

Patron of Arts

I individually assume he ought to be significantly better acknowledged for his patronage of artwork.

I very well try to remember the exhibition Prince and Patron at Buckingham Palace in 2018 to mark his 70th birthday later that year and his abiding desire in the arts and significantly the visual arts.- which I reviewed in Assessment: Prince & Patron Exhibition at Buckingham Palace. It was a stunning exhibition and demonstrated his broad ranging pursuits in each individual part of the visible arts – and patronage of some.

The Prince’s Foundation has also been liable for the creation of:

He is also been pretty keen on the preservation of standard arts and crafts abilities and architecture. This includes:

  • a heritage preservation programme 
  • the development of Florilegia – a collection of botanical paintings of vegetation – having sponsored the advancement of 3 -(two volumes of the Highgrove Florilegium and the Transylvania Florilegium)  

I have viewed it two times in the latest moments. As soon as on the significant footstool in entrance of the fire in the Drawing Area at Clarence Household. All over again, the the Prince and Patron exhibition (Summer 2018) at Buckingham Palace to mark the Prince of Wales’s 70th Birthday.

see my posts about

King Charles is a Patron of the New English Art Club and has often exhibited at their Annual Exhibition. There are normally two of his watercolours at the major of the stairs as you descend into the Annual Exhibition. I am going to be fascinated to see regardless of whether they surface in this year’s exhibition. They never ever surface in the On-line Exhibition.

I never imagine quite a few people realise really how considerably a supporter of the arts he is.
