Crucifixus by Philip Core


 Philip Core was an astonishing man and artist who has featured a couple of times already on this blog, including quite a long biographical post so I am just leaving these here by way of an 'update' really. This set of four silverpoints were offered for sale at auction by Chiswick Auctions during the week titled 'Crucifixus', they have labels on the back which the auction house interprets as meaning they were exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 1985. This may be the case but I think the labels only indicate that they were entered for the exhibition, not that they were selected and hung.
