Clockwork - Portrait of Umberto Sarri

Oil on Linen 

36” x 38”

Umberto Sarri is a master clock and watch repairer.His small shop,named ‘Clockwork’in North London offers a fascinating experience to anyone who ventures in.Apart from the wonderful display of antique timepieces there are many clues to Umberto’s Italian Heritage - if you look closely enough.

I have painted Umberto exactly as you would find him if you entered the shop,hunched over a timepiece,his work bench brightly lit to aid his delicate work.
