ART I ADMIRE: Edward Burra [1905 -1976]


A very British painter who is not widely known, he painted in watercolour and I think only one oil painting as he suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and watercolour brushes are lighter.  Very much of his period, witty, frivolous as only people who are profound can be. Synchronicity - I went to Rye only last week - Burra's home town. Watch the BBC's 'I Will Never Tell Anybody Anything' - The Life & Art of Edward Burra - by Adrian Graham Dixon.
