1903-1980. Sutherland was an English artist known for his paintings, prints, glass and fabrics. He studied at Goldsmith's College of Art, London where he specialised in engraving and etching. He painted mostly landscapes during his early years and he gradually developed a surrealist style which led to him becoming a leading figure in modern British art. During World War II he was an official war artist. He taught in various art schools, including at Chelsea School of Art. He was from early on, inspired by the landscape of Pembrokeshire, and his later works continued to be based on nature and natural forms. He completed a number of commissions throughout his life and his work is held in many important public collections.
