PAUL MANOUSSO (1930-2022)
PAINTINGS FROM THE ARTIST’S ESTATE
6-8pm Thursday 27th April
The exhibition continues until Saturday 13th May
Paul Manousso was born in Athens in 1930. He was educated at Highgate School, the Architectural Association School (where he gained a scholarship in 1950) and at the British School of Art and Archaeology in Rome (1955-56). In 1957 he joined the architectural office of Maxwell Fry, Jane Drew and Sir Denys Lasdun before setting up his own practice – Manousso & Partners – in 1959. He ran a busy, prize winning office, overseeing the restoration of St George’s Square in 1964 and teaching Planning and Design at the Architectural Association. In the ’70s he decided to become a full time artist, moving to New York in 1972 and studying at The Studio School of Sculpture, Painting and Drawing. He had a number of one-man shows in London, his last being here at Abbott and Holder in 2004. Aside from his beautiful, large still-lifes, his works were made on his many travels; to India, Southern Europe, Morocco, Tunisia, Mexico and Cuba. Paul died in London last April and all these paintings come from his Estate.
