Display caption

George studied at Edinburgh College of Art and at Camberwell School of Art, London under William Coldstream, who introduced him to the Euston Road School tradition of accurate rendering of the chosen object or scene. George adopted this as his working practice and his landscapes were painted in the open air in front of the motif, usually over a long period of time. George has lived and worked on land forming part of the Grove farm at Hickbush in Suffolk since 1961 and this is one of the first paintings he made of the landscape there.
