Inge Clayton – Austria 1942-2010
It is with deep sorrow that we have to tell you, Inge died on Sunday July 17th 2010
It is naturally assumed that works of art that exalt the eroticism of the female body must have originated in the eyes of man: Inge Clayton and her passion for the human form prove this assumption wrong.
British critics are often quick to point out the European heritage in this painters work and have likened her to artists such as Otto Dix, Kokoshka, and George Grosz, but her nudes are sensuous and painterly in style, very much her own. Her figures may look unabashed and or a little startled, Her restless energy has turned to sculpting the human figure and horses, a further affirmation to her ability.
Inge was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy. Other notable exhibitions include The Royal Society of Art, Art for Equality, at the IC and Kunsthaus Schaller Stutgart. She has had many commissions by notable collectors world wide.
