East Anglian Artists


This course celebrates the artistic achievements made by East Anglian artists over a hundred and fifty years and how they contributed to the reputation of the area as one of the most attractive places to live and work following the success of internationally renowned artists such as Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable. This course will focus on a range of artists, both male and female, that made a significant contribution to East Anglian art in different periods, styles and subjects but remain relatively unknown beyond the region. From the delicately conceived water colour studies by Leonard Squirrell, the “kitchen sink” dramas by Colin Moss in the 1950’s, the stunning commissioned work by Anna Airy, the first female war artist in the First World War and to the sculptural creations by Bernard Reynolds. Andrew Casey produced a small book on the life and work to accompany a special exhibition at the University of Suffolk in 2014 to mark the start of the First World War. He has been a member of the Ipswich Art Society for over thirty years and is currently Deputy Chairman
