Anthony Green RA
Anthony Green was born in 1939. He studied at the Slade School of Art, where he won the Henry Tonks Prize for drawing in 1960. This was followed by the Gulbenkian Purchase Award in 1963 and the Harkness Fellowship in the USA from 1967-69. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1971 and he served as a Trustee between 2000-2008. He was the Featured Artist at the 2003 Summer Exhibition and from 2009-12 was Chairman of the RA's Exhibitions Committee. He is also a Fellow of University College, London.
Public collections owning Green's work include (among many others) the Tate Gallery, V&A, Boston Museum of Fine Art, Setagaya Museum, Tokyo and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. He has had over 100 one-man shows worldwide since 1962. To celebrate the Millennium, his pictorial sculpture, Resurrection, was shown in 15 UK cathedrals.
Green published several lithographs in collaboration with Curwen Gallery, printed at the Curwen Studio in 1988.
In May 2017 we have a very special exhibition of work by the Green family. Anthony will be joined by both his wife and his daughter, both of whom have shown work with Curwen Gallery previously, for a 'Green Family Exhibition' in our main gallery space.
