Graham Vivian Sutherland OM was a prolific English artist born in London in 1903. Notable for his paintings of abstract landscapes and for his portraits of public figures, Sutherland also worked in other media, including printmaking, tapestry and glass design. He attended Epsom School and then studied art at Goldsmith’s School of Art (1921-26) where he quickly became a highly skilled etcher. As an official War Artist, Sutherland depicted bomb damage in London but it was not until after the war that he started to become really well known. He was awarded the Order of Merit in 1960 and died in London in 1980.
