"It was his lack of interest in maths, history and all other classroom
subjects that made Larry take up art. He enrolled at art school aged 13
and has been painting ever since."
"With accomplished technical ability now rare, Larry Learmonth's Minor Prophet combines the traditions on english neo-Romantic landscape with an eerie and enigmatic surrealism that leave the spectator with a profound sense of unease."

Brian Sewell - Art Critic.  (Daily Mail, June 2004)
