Alfred Daniels 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.
Alfred Daniels was interviewed in January 2012 for Spitalfields Life . This is a very interesting article containing many images of his work including some from his sketchbooks. There are also pictures of the studio, including one of the artist himself.
Danny died in London on the 27th of April 2015. View Obituary
