John Bolam (1922-2009)

Painter, designer and teacher, born in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. The landscape of the Chilterns, English Romantic painters and poets, and modern French artists such as Braque and Degas all influenced Bolam's work. He studied furniture design at High Wycombe School of Art, and went on to become Principal of the School of Art at Cambridge, 1970-83. Showed at AIA Gallery, Leicester Galleries; New Art Centre, (one-man show). Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden holds his work. In spite of obvious similarities between his work and that of the Neo-Romantics, (most notably Piper and Sutherland), the origin and evolution of Bolam's imagery was independent from theirs.
