Evan Charlton 1904 - 1984

Evan Charlton (1904-84) trained at the Slade School of Fine Art in London and spent most of his working life in Wales, firstly as head of Cardiff School of Art, and later Schools Inspector for Art in Wales and England.
Although he painted throughout his career and became associated with the British Surrealist movement, it was only after taking early retirement in the 1960s that he painted full time. His meticulous fine feathery brushwork of his mature work meant that he completed very few paintings a year, sometimes only three a year, so the number of paintings by Charlton are few and far between. Public and private collections include the National Museum of Wales and Tate Britain.
