Biography from Cheffins:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Gilbert Mason was born in 1913 at Newport, Gwent, one of four brothers brought up in an orphanage in South Wales.  He studied at Newport College of Art from 1930 to 1934, and at the Royal College of Art from 1934 to 1937 as an etcher, engraver and draughtsman.

In 1938 he started his teaching career at Leeds School of Art.  From 1940-1943 he served in the Military Police and from 1943-1945 he transferred to RAF Medmenham, working for the Central Photographic Interpretation unit, (Model Making Section) of the RAF.  This involved the interpretation of aerial reconnaissance photographs and making 3-D models of major military operational areas to assist with battle planning.  These models played an important role in the planning of the Normandy Landings of June 1944.

In1945 he resumed his teaching career at Leeds School of Art.  In 1950 he became Vice-Principal of Eastbourne School of Art.  He then went to Birmingham College of Art where he stayed for the remainder of his teaching career as Head of the School of Painting.
