Mark Barrow Fine Art represents the artists' estate
Copnall first went to Spain in late 1950s, when he and fellow
art student, Bert Flugelman, hitchhicked down to Barcelona.
The plan was to stay for one month, but the Spanish
landscape had such a profound effect on Copnall that he
ended up staying until 1968! Flugelman returned to England
and Copnall found a small farmhouse just outside what was
then the tiny village of Benalmadena, Andalucia, where,
inspired by a combination of his interest in Abstract
Expressionism and the dramatic Spanish landscape, he began
a series of powerful abstract paintings.
