british-impressionism

Augustus John, OM, RA (1878-1961), British (Welsh). Painter, etcher, draughtsman. Studied under Henry Tonks (1862-1937), whose star pupil he was, at the Slade alongside his sister, Gwen John (1876-1939). Post-impressionist and member of the Camden Town Group. He was a prolific painter of portraits, many of family members. Although this blog is mainly devoted to British landscape, I have included a few - they are, after all, mapping the topography of human features.
