Person  Male  Born 28/5/1911  Died 7/1/1980

Categories: Art, Sculpture

Countries: Canada, France

Painter and sculptor. Born London but brought up in Nottingham. Despite a scholarship (aged 12!) to study art at Nottingham Art School he left school and in 1927 went to Canada doing the sort of jobs men of that age do (mining, logging and printing). But he returned to London in 1933 to study art. He went on to study in Paris and returned to England with his first wife on the outbreak of WW2. In 1960, he married his second wife, Dutch Indonesian Renske van Slooten, 28 years his junior. Self-portrait from about 1950. More of his work, many war-damaged London street scenes, can be seen in the post by the wonderful Spitalfields Life.
