Anthony Green was born in 1939, and studied at the Slade School of art. He is an eminent Royal Academician and a figurative painter. He was accepted into the Royal Academy in 1977 and frequently exhibits in the Summer Exhibition. His paintings are colourful and, as he maintains that pictures do not have to have edges, are frequently not contained within a rectangular form, but are instead displayed on irregular-shaped supports or free-standing structures. His works are highly personal, expressing his passion for his wife, Mary and the intimacy and love of their family life. His work is a survey of his family and his surroundings.
Green’s first solo exhibition was held in 1962 at the Rowan Gallery, and has since had over 80 solo shows in many cities worldwide, including London, Tokyo, New York, Rotterdam, Chicago, Berlin, Brussels and Sidney. A retrospective of his work was held at the Royal Academy of Arts in 1978 and in Japan, 1987-88. He is a fellow of University College, London and serves as a Trustee of the Royal Academy.
