Artist, Anthony Fry 1927-2016.

Fry – who died in 2016 – lived and worked near Bath for sixty years but made pictures that expressed his principal inspiration of travel.

Although he enjoyed great commercial success in Britain and America during his lifetime, his work has not previously been recognised by a major exhibition. Comprising works lent from prestigious private collections, the show reveals the considerable extent of his talent.

Meanwhile, David Simon contacted  Bath Newseum to say:

‘By happy coincidence, The Holburne exhibition of work by the late, well-known Modern British painter, Anthony Fry this month coincides with a solo exhibition of new paintings by veteran painter, Diana Matthews FRSA at my gallery. She was taught by Fry at the Bath Academy of Art in the 1950’s.”
