LOOK / Harry Holland / Caprice

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Harry Holland is a contemporary, figurative and realist painter from the UK.

These are some of his paintings from a series entitled Caprice, a noun meaning ‘a sudden and unaccountable change of mood or behaviour’, which finds it’s etymology in the 17th century Italian word cappriccio, or ‘a painting or other work of art representing a fantasy or a mixture of real and imaginary features’.
