Patrick George (1923-2016)
Formerly Professor of Painting at the Slade, Patrick is one of the most distinguished British artists of the last fifty years. His work is represented in many national and international collections including the Tate, the National Portrait Gallery and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Born in 1923, he studied at Edinburgh School of Art and then Camberwell where he was taught by Sir William Coldstream. He then went on to teach at the Slade from 1949 becoming Professor of Painting in 1983. Patrick is a figurative painter in the Euston Road tradition with a lovely delicate touch and an English lyrical feel to his oil paintings.
Numerous one man shows and mixed exhibitions mark him out as one of the most important and influential painters of modern times.
