Anthony Klitz (1917-2000)

The Impressionist style urban cityscape artist Tony Robert Klitz was born in Southport and attended Bishop Wordsworth School, Salisbury before studying painting and drawing at Cheltenham Art College (1936-1939). He also received training as an architect. Klitz served in the War, ending up as a Major, and in 1950 moved to London where he painted alongside the Australian artist Hayward Veal where he began exhibiting his work. On his second showing, one critic (Norman Collins) stated:

"His pictures show a fine but restrained sense of colour and he is engagingly sensitive to the London scene. Mr. Klitz is an artist - and this is a high tribute indeed - whose work will appeal equally to those who live in London and to those who have paid a visit to London, and want to have something by which to remember it. Whether it is Horse Guards Parade or the River, Mr. Klitz has captured that strange pearly light which is the secret of so much of London's grace."

Klitz later moved to Ireland where he lived and painted for much of his life. His last few solo shows were held at the Davis Gallery in Dublin. He died in the city in 2000.

During his career as a painter his output was prolific. Specialising in cityscape portraits of London, his understanding of architecture and his subtle, sensitive palette enabled him to replicate the streets of London, as well as the formal pomp of military occasions and river scenes, with detailed dexterity.

In particular, he is admired by art critics for his masterly reproduction of London's watery light.
