Langans Painting (Peter Langan) - Guy Gladwell - Framed Print - 20"H x 16"W

Guy Gladwell, was born in Nairobi, and began painting in Jersey under the tuition of Sir Francis Barry, a revered post impressionist based on the island.

Rapidly establishing himself as an excellent seascape artist, the ambitious young painter moved to London in 1969 where he joined the Nicholas Treadwell Gallery.

In 1980 he parted ways and enjoyed a prolific period, earning commissions to paint portraits of Michael Caine and Paul Simon, demanding a private performance of Bridge Over Troubled Water from the songwriter in return.

He exhibited extensively across Europe and America, with numerous appearances at the Royal Academy, establishing himself alongside contemporaries such as David Hockney, Ronald Kitaj and Keith Proctor.

Peter Langan was an Irish entrepreneur, who in partnership with the actor Michael Caine, opened Langan's Brasserie, a restaurant situated on Stratton Street, Mayfair, London. The Brasserie (which had previously housed the ornate restaurant Le Coq d'Or) quickly attracted celebrities and became hugely successful.

Langan's Brasserie remains one of the most popular restaurants in London today.
