Biography Albert Irvin
Called up as a gunner in the RAF in 1941, Albert Irvin saw active service on bombing missions over Germany. On being released from the air force, he studied at Goldsmiths College of Art, where he later taught for many years. Best known for his large colorful and dynamic abstract work, Irvin’s early painting again shows a strong influence of the figurative romantics such as John Minton or John Craxton.
Irvin began to paint in Cornwall during the 1950’s when he mixed with Peter Lanyon, Terry Frost and Patrick Heron. Nancy met Albert Irvin around the time these paintings were painted, through her boyfriend of the time, painter Derek Middleton. Albert Irvin died at the age of 92 in March 2015.
