Attributed: 'Sir Norman Reid' R.A (1915-2007) Single Yellow Rose Oil Painting
A beautiful all-original 20th Century Oil on Panel Floral Still Life Painting depicting a single yellow Rose in a tall clear glass floral vase.
Attributed to Royal Academy Listed 'Sir Norman Reid' (1915-2007).
Sir Norman Robert Reid (27 December 1915 – 17 December 2007) was director of what was then the Tate Gallery (and is now Tate Britain) for 15 years from 1964 until 1979 - years that saw the biggest expansion in the gallery's activities up to that time. Unlike his immediate predecessor and successors, he trained as an artist and, apart from wartime service, devoted his entire career to the Tate and the museum world. Despite his reticent personality, his achievement was remarkable and radical.
Born in Dulwich, south London, Norman studied at Wilson's grammar school, Camberwell, Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University, but his career as an artist was interrupted by the second world war, during which he served in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, reaching the rank of major. On being demobbed in 1946, he joined the Tate staff, becoming deputy director in 1954 and keeper in 1959.
