GRAHAM SUTHERLAND | Study of a Head
12" x 11" / 31cms x 28cms
Watercolour and Charcoal
- Graham Sutherland was born in Streatham, London in 1903. After leaving school, under the instruction of his parents, Sutherland began an engineering apprenticeship at the Midland Railway Works in Derby. In 1921 he finally persuaded his father that he was not destined for a career in engineering and he began to study engraving at Goldsmith’s School of Art. Sutherland’s early prints show a great influence of Frederick Landseer Griggs and Samuel Palmer, both prolific British etchers and printmakers. Sutherland’s first one-man exhibition was in 1925, the same year that he was elected to the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. In 1926 he converted to Roman Catholicism. He taught at the Chelsea School of Art from 1928 to 1939.
