Richard Wilson Online is the outcome of ongoing intensive research undertaken since October 2009 with a view to re-establishing the artist’s true status and redefining his authentic oeuvre. The project aims to update and assimilate the magisterial catalogue raisonné published by Professor W.G. Constable in 1953 and Sir Brinsley Ford’s The Drawings of Richard Wilson of 1951 (still the only book on the subject). In addition it is intended to add a commentary on the prints after Wilson’s works, which were a crucial instrument in their public reception. By its nature such an undertaking is lengthy and for this reason Richard Wilson Online is presented as a work-in-progress. We will shortly be optimising the Site for viewing on mobile devices.
