Graham Sutherland (1903-1980)

Born in Eynsteat (Kent), the artist graduated at the Goldsmith's College School of Art in London, where he was among others taught by Malcolm Osborne and Stanley Anderson. In 1926 Sutherland became a member of the Royal Society of Engravers and Etchers. For three years (1927-29) he was a teacher at the Chelsea School of Art and in the mid-30s again taught book illustration there. Along with John Piper, Sutherland is one of the extreme representatives of a modern art movement in England, which combines a fantastic Romanticism with surrealistic elements. In his paintings and etchings an extraordinary inventiveness finds its expression, which almost completely abolishes the boundaries between organic and inorganic. He was particularly influenced by British landscape painter and etcher Samuel Palmer. Major retrospectives of Sutherland's works were e.g. in 1982 at the Tate Gallery in London, in 1998 in France and in 2005 at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, also in London.
