Painting Alexis


"Ross Watson has created another dazzlingly provocative, witty and enchanting take on a classic painting. In the original, the centaur Chiron leans over the young Achilles and schools him in archery. In the Ross Watson version Alexis Caught joins the group - just removing his rugby shirt as he prepares either to take instruction from Chiron himself or to join in with the tutoring of Achilles."
