Keith Vaughan (1912 - 1977) Limited Edition Fine Art Prints
Keith Vaughan was born at Selsey, Sussex. He went to school at Christ's Hospital, Hastings where the headmaster H A Rigby encouraged his interest in art. After Christ's he rejoined his family who had moved Hampstead and he continued to live there for the rest of his life. In 1931 he went to work for an advertising agency but continued to paint as a hobby. He became friends with Australian artist John Passmore and the two of them spent a year just before the war living in a rented cottage in Suffolk where they painted and went to the ballet. He was a conscientious objector and worked for much of the war as a German interpreter at a prisoner of war camp in Yorkshire. He continued to paint and draw and kept a diary which he later published. He had his first exhibition in London in 1942 and had subsequent shows in the USA, Brazil and the UK. He taught at Camberwell School of Art from 1946-8 and then at the Central School and as a visiting teacher at the Slade. He concentrated exclusively on painting landscapes, influenced by Graham Sutherland and males nudes. He was appointed CBE in 1965 and continued to travel widely. In later years he became increasingly melancholic and after being diagnosed with cancer, he took his own life in 1977.
