Product Description

Notre Dame & The Pont De L’Archevechie, Ken Howard

Ken Howard was born in London. He studied at the Hornsey College of Art (1949-53) and the Royal College of Art (1955-58).

The first Ken Howard one-man show was held at the Plymouth Art Centre in 1955. Subsequent art exhibitions were held in 1966 and 1968 at the John Whibley Gallery. From then on Ken Howard exhibited extensively, both nationally and internationally, particularly with the New Grafton Art Gallery from the early 1970s. Ken Howard was given a retrospective exhibition in 1972 at the Plymouth City Art Gallery.

In 1991 he was elected to the Royal Academy (RA). In 1998 he became President of the New English Art Club, a post he held until 2003 Howard paints in a traditional style, based on strong observation and a high degree of draughtsmanship combined with tonal precision.

The depiction of light is a strong and recurrent element of his work. He has said: “I was brought up in London surrounded by railway yards and factories. This has very much influenced the use of horizontal and vertical structures and lines in my work. I am not a landscape painter, but rather a vertical horizontal and linear painter, which is why I have a passion for the lines that occur within my studios, and include them in my paintings”.
Ken Howard contemporary paintings are found in many British and International private and public art collections. These include the Imperial war Museum and Plymouth City Art gallery.
