Michael Ayrton [1921-75] - Major exhibition - 8 June to 4 August 2011 - We specialise in the work of Michael Ayrton and represent the artist's estate. He began as a painter as one of the UK's 'Neo- Romantic' group of artists, including Graham Sutherland, John Piper and Keith Vaughan. In 1954 Ayrton also began to sculpt and is now probably better known as a sculptor. He died at the age of only 54, but still had over 70 one-man exhibitions worldwide [approx. 13 in the USA]. Michael Ayrton sculpture & paintings are held in over 50 public collections throughout the world, including MOMA [NY] and the Tate Gallery [London]. There are several books on Michael Ayrton work and a large biography by Justine Hopkins.
