Read our article on Michael's life and work written after we received the news of his death in early 2021.
Michael Pullée's work developed from personal observation and responses to the South Devon landscape, the sea and ships. Travel to the Mediterranean – Italy, Greece, turkey and Egypt – widened his range of subjects. Drawings in a variety of media formed the basis of most of the paintings. Many subjects were revisited, as a result of new observation or time. The size of the works varied depending on both subject and medium chosen. He was interested in images with a wide angle of view and experiments with triptych presentations or large images on paper.
Wherever possible, Michael preferred direct observation of the subject. This was reinforced by photographic records. Images may have been painted or drawn out of doors on site or in the studio – or from a boat or ship. His works varied in scale. Pencil, Conté stick, pen & ink, watercolour and oils were the most frequently used media.
