    dance hall 1943. gouache by guy gravette 1919-1996

    GUY GRAVETTE. 1919-1996

     
    THIS PAINTING WAS PRODUCED WHILE THE ARTIST WAS IN THE ARMY AND STATIONED IN SCOTLAND.
     
    Painter in Oil, pastel and watercolour. Photographer.
    Guy studied art at the Brighton School of art between 1937-39 where he was taught by Walter Bayes, Lawrence Preston and Sallis Benney. He always wanted to be a professional painter, but the war intervened and he joined the army. He ended up in Italy in 1944 where he was to be the port master at Naples. After the war he realised that there was little money to be made as an Artist and concentrated on his second love, photography. He was fortunate to meet John Christie who ran Glyndebourne and was given the post of Photographer to the Festival Opera, a post he held for 40 years until his death in 1996. During this time he continued to paint and recorded many of the great operas that were produced during this period.
