William Balthazar Rose was awarded a prize at the opening reception for the 2014 Exhibition of the Bath Society of Artists at Victoria Art Gallery in Bath. William is a member of the society which recognized the painting 'The History of Imitation' with a stupendous prize. The exhibition is showing through the month of April. Critics and the public appear to be deeply enamored with this mysterious and exceptional work.
The artist when contacted said the painting evolved over several years and was influenced in part by 'The Hunt' by Paolo Uccello, and by his own visitation to forests in North America.
