Biography Leslie Hurry
One of the Neo-Romantic group of artists in the 1940s, including Graham Sutherland, John Piper, Keith Vaughan, John Craxton, Michael Ayrton, etc. A very fine painter, currently hugely underrated. These days he is probably better known for his theatre designs, which he regarded as a job, preferable to teaching - unfortunately he was one of the greatest theatre designers [much better than David Hockney], so these have rather overshadowed his normal paintings, which he considered to be his best work. The Tate Gallery collection includes several of his paintings.
