Accompanied by a full insurance authenticity certificate. 100% authenticity guaranteed. Brian Shields (1951-1997) was a Liverpool-born English painter. He is best known for painting industrial scenes of northern Britain. The unusual name of 'braaq' is a misspelling of the famous French artist Braque which, on account of his artistic talent as a boy, was his nickname at school. The name 'Ann' after his own signature was his sister who died at the young age of 21 and to whose memory all of his subsequent paintings were dedicated. All of Braaq's paintings are based, in a humorous way, on his childhood memories of Liverpool. In 1977 he held four exhibitions in London and was described by The Times as "one of the six most successful artists in England." This is one of several rare original Braaq paintings we currently have available for sale.
