Alfred Daniels Art Cards
Alfred Daniels (Danny) was born in London's East End in 1924. In the late 1940's he studied at the Royal College of Art, London. As a young graduate he toured Florence, Venice, Ravenna and Siena where he was deeply impressed by the Italian Primitives. His award winning murals (1952-54) at Hammersmith Town Hall depicting life on the Thames are regarded as a modern classic. An example of his early painting rightly compared to the work of the great American artist Ben Shahn, was included in a recent survey of 1950's British paintings at London's Barbican Centre. He was elected a member of The Royal Watercolour Society in 1973, The Royal Society of British Artists in 1983 and elected Keeper of The Royal Society in 1991.
