Michael Ayrton [1921-75] -  We specialise in the work of Michael Ayrton and represent the artist's estate - we will be holding an exhibition of his work in 2017.

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.
