Philip drew his inspiration from the fields and landscape that surrounded him as well as from his travels abroad.
PHILIP JONES (1933 - 2008)
Educated at Malvern College, Jones was taught by the Post Impressionist painter Harry Fabian-Ware and won both of the school's art prizes. In 1953 he was accepted into the Slade School of Fine Art where he studied alongside artists such as Victor Willing, Michael Andrews, and William Turnbull. Jones was lucky enough to be privately tutored by Tom Monnington and the Principal, William Coldstream, during his three years there. He was also heavily influenced by the Slade’s occasional visitors such as Lucien Freud who bought one of his student pictures. He exhibited annually at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and had many exhibitions in this country and abroad. In 1993 he won the King’s Lynn Eastern Open Prize.
