Richard Shirley Smith

Ten years ago, Practitioners' Voices in Classical Reception Studies published an interview with artist Richard Shirley Smith, whose paintings, wood engravings and large-scale murals have frequently engaged with the imagery and ideas of classical antiquity. In May 2022, Jasmine Hunter Evans and Jessica Hughes returned to visit the artist at his home in Marlborough, to learn more about his techniques and creative processes.
