About This Work

(1992-2015) This piece began in 1992 after the artist had completed a series of paintings for Anglo-American Farms of their new winery at Vergelegen. This was an additional view that he began painting for himself as a kind of summation of his work there, depicting the winery that was then still under construction, as the architects saw it with the surrounding vineyards matured and the landscaping complete. Other commissioned work got in the way of its completion at that time and only recently did Laubin pick it up again having completed his Lutyens capriccio and being somewhat at loose ends; having thoughts of Lutyens/Jekyll gardens very much on his mind.
“The landscape at Vergelegen is matured now, but not exactly as the architects originally envisaged it. It is this latter idea I have tried to capture in the painting, with the vines coming right up to the building and concentric with the shape of the main structure. Incidentally, both the Chai at Pichon-Longueville and the winery at Vergelegen are by the same architects, Dillon/De Gastines, who involved me in both projects and a third for Michel and Christine Guérard at their chateau near Eugénie les Bains.” Carl Laubin, March 2015
