  • Description
  • Related

The first half of the twentieth century produced one of the finest crops of traditional painters Great Britain has ever known.This was matched in the second half of the century by further generations of painters who, unlike their predecessors, were born into the era of television and the visual media. One name stands out amongst all others as being associated with both art forms– that name is Crawshaw.

Alwyn Crawshaw and, latterly, his wife June have become synonymous with the promotion of the painter’s art. Artists in their own right, their books, videos and television series have encouraged millions of people worldwide to try their hand at painting. This publication is a celebration of those fruitful years and a reflection of the joy that Alwyn and June have brought to their countless followers. The book recalls their many achievements in the world of fine art, teaching and the media. There are personal insights into their formative years, family life and the struggle to become established culminating in world-wide recognition.

The pictures are a delightful collection of the work of both artists and show their wide range of talents in the use of watercolour, oil and acrylic. The range of subject matter will suit all tastes, from Alwyn’s dramatic portrayal of the Norfolk coastline, to June’s gentle images of birds, people and flowers. This book, profusely illustrated in colour, will be a joy to all who love painting, both as a source of inspiration and as an enduring tribute to the work of Alwyn and June Crawshaw.
