When i purchased this watercolour from Neville Bertram in the mid 1990's, he told me that Mykonos was a fairly undeveloped island and being a sculptor/painter he went to see the archaeological remains to get inspiration for future works. Sculptor, painter and teacher. Born in Cullercoats, Northumberland. Studied at Durham university 1926-29, where he gained a Diploma in Fine Art. In 1930 he obtained his board of education drawing and painting certificates under Robert Lyon. He moved to Liverpool in 1933, making commercial and monumental sculpture with Herbert Tyson Smith, whose daughter he married. During the war he served in the Air Ministry, and taught at Liverpool College of Art from 1945 to 1973. He joined the Liverpool Academy in 1946, becoming honorary treasurer and secretary. In 1950 he was made an associate of the Royal Society of British Sculptors. His work is held by the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
