Paul Hogarth

Paul Hogarth, who very sadly died in December 2001, was one of the most distinguished painters of our times with a unique talent for illustration and reportage, which was allied, to his love of travel. This led him to produce drawings and watercolours recording events and places all over the world. As an illustrator he worked with a number of eminent authors including Robert Graves, Graham Greene, Brendan Behan and Lawrence Durrell. He was elected an associate member of the Royal Academy in 1974, a full member in 1984 and was awarded the OBE in 1989. His work is held in collections worldwide, he exhibited regularly in the Francis Kyle Gallery in London and his lithographs are available from Contemporary Art Holdings, Cirencester.
