  • About the work
  • About the artist
    Born in London, Algernon Newton was the grandson of the founder of the artists’ materials firm, Winsor and Newton. He trained at the Slade School of Art and the London School of Art and first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1903 of which he later became a member in 1943. After the First World War, many British artists chose to rediscover aspects of nature. Some, like Paul Nash, left London in search of inspiring landscapes. Newton was drawn to the poetic subject matter of London itself, painting striking atmospheric glimpses of the city. Newton’s works are held in numerous public collections in the UK, Australia, South Africa and the USA. A retrospective exhibition of his work was held at the Royal Academy in 1980.
