AUTHOR: Steven Alexander
Christopher Alexander
Christopher Alexander
  • Description

A book of Christopher Alexanderís superb drawings and oil sketches is long overdue, and lovers of high-quality figurative art will now have the opportunity to savour the work of a modern master.

Born in Margate in 1926, the son of a window cleaner, Chris drew obsessively from an early age and after the war he won a place at the Royal College of Art.

He then taught in the Fine Art, Architecture, and Foundation departments, specialising in figure drawing, initially at Thanet School of Art and later at Canterbury College of Art, while at the same time producing a huge number of drawings and paintings. His enormous energy, his optimism, and his festive temperament inspired all those he taught and his constant pursuit of excellence underpinned his lifeís work. He died suddenly in 1982.

For more information about the artist visit www.christopheralexander.co.uk.

Steven Alexander is a linguist by training with a PhD in Spanish, but has drawn and painted for more than forty years, benefiting from his fatherís example and advice. He is a member of the prestigious Wapping Group of Artists, and can regularly be found somewhere along the Thames trying but failing yet again to paint a minor masterpiece. He remains determined to succeed one day.
