Toby Wright

We are privileged to show the work of the painter Toby Wright at Lympstone Manor and hope you find time to view his work during your stay.

Toby was born and raised in France and is senior lecturer and instructor at the Florence Academy of Art; teaching classes in the human figure, portraiture, and still life.

Inspired by the old masters of pre-20th century, Toby perpetuates the tradition of painting from life. Alternating between figurative paintings, landscapes, and portrait commissions, he is committed to working from a model in the studio, or painting in ‘plein-air’, gleaning all his inspiration and information from the lived experience, to give the full visual story.

His professional career has led to various solo and group exhibitions across Europe and America, including Monaco, London, New York, and Los Angeles. His most recent collaborative project was with 15 other artists, in a collective exhibition project, “the image of Russia”, hosted by the culture ministry in Moscow in 2012.

His recent expedition to the Polar region offered him the opportunity to witness, interpret the poetic beauty of the landscape, and contribute a voice to the fight for its conservation.

Although we only have a small selection of Toby’s work on display at present, we look forward to exhibiting his solo show sometime during 2018. If you would like to find out more about Toby Wright’s work please click on our website.
