Syd Barrett Painting Stolen First Photo

Bookmark and Share

Here is the first glimpse of the Syd Barrett painting that was stolen from the the Idea Generation Gallery in London's Shoreditch last Saturday. It was painted in 1961-62 before Barrett joined the band Pink Floyd.

The painting is applied in a heavy impasto in blues, rusts, white and brown tones. It is almost abstract with a stylized rendered portrait of the young Barrett staring face on at the viewer. It is typical of the art college style, at Camberwell in the early 1960's

Barret died in 2006. A reward of £2000 is being offered for its safe return.
