HARRY REDMAN (1920-1994)
– WWII Drawings –
Harry Redman grew up in Broadstairs and Margate. He trained at the Thanet School of Art and Architecture from 1937-1940, and attended Walter Sickert’s afternoon Salons in Broadstairs. He signed up for the RAF at the beginning of WWII and was passed for Officer training as a pilot. However, it was discovered he had a heart condition so he opted for a place in the RAF Signals as an NCO. He served in West Africa (Sierra Leone / Freetown) for two years, then was sent to the North West Frontier where he set up Direction Finding Stations.
During 1943 Redman studied part-time at the Ruskin School of Drawing (Oxford), the Central School of Art and the Slade. He returned to full-time education at the University of Reading School of Fine Art in 1948, receiving a Ministry of Education Diploma in Design and a Ministry of Education Art Teacher’s Diploma. Redman was subsequently appointed as a lecturer at the University of Reading were he stayed until his retirement in 1985 and where he is still remembered with great admiration and fondness.
In the 1950s Redman established the print-making workshop at Reading University. In the 1960s, when Claude Rogers was Professor of Fine Art, he took a sabatical to work at Stanley Hayter’s Atelier 17 in Paris. We will be showing a group of the abstract prints he made from the 1960s-1980s later in the month.

HOW ‘THE LIST’ WORKS
Our Lists introduce 100 works to our large stock of oil paintings, watercolours, drawings and prints each month.
They are usually published in two halves, in the first and third weeks of the month. We treat email enquiries about List pictures in strict order of receipt. Please call if you would prefer to talk to us about anything you see on the website, but we strongly advise sending an email first; we are happy to hold works for a short time while they are being considered, or to give time to make a vist.
Images: These are intended as an indication of the work – please telephone or email if you have any questions about the photograph’s relationship to the original. We are always happy to send further photos – frames, versos, inscriptions, something to give scale – so please do ask.
Postage: Most works can be packed and posted, inland and abroad. Quotes can be sent.
Approval Service: We are happy to send works on approval, but this is subject to discussion.
