Artist Biography
Stephen PearsonYorkshire-born artist Stephen Pearson studied painting both in London and the North, but preferred to think of himself as self-taught, having learnt from those Masters whose work stimulated him most.

Asked to name these artists, he would list Caravaggio and those subsequent artists through to Turner who were concerned with the representation of light in its most dramatic forms. Amongst contemporary painters he was most influenced by the surrealists, but ultimately he rejected the negative content of much of their work; hence the romantic fantasies which formed a great part of his output.

Stephen Pearson exhibited in London and in the provincial cities and gained a world-wide reputation from the many successful reproductions of his work. His best-known work, Wings of Love, is perhaps the best-selling image of all time and over three million copies of it are now in print.

Stephen Pearson died in March 2003.
About this Piece
Wings of Love was an instant success when it was first published in the early 1970s. Upon it's release, it sold well over 3½ million copies and gained even greater popularity after its central role in the seminal 1970s BBC TV production, "Abigail’s Party".

Wings of Love is considered to be one of the all-time best selling prints in the world.
