Object Literature

Rowland Suddaby was born in Kimberworth, Yorkshire and studied at Sheffield College of Art from 1926. In 1931 he married and moved to London where he initially worked designing for films in Wardour Street before taking up painting full-time. He held his first one-man show at the Wertheim Gallery in 1935 and in 1936 exhibited with the Redfern Gallery with whom he was to hold a series of one-man exhibitions. In the mid and late 1930s he painted vigorous and atmospheric pictures in London and Cornwall leading the Redfern Gallery to consider him to be their successor to Christopher Wood.

Eventually Suddaby left London and moved to Great Cornard, near Sudbury, Suffolk and his subject matter then began to very much concentrate on the landscape of East Anglia. His work is in many public collections in Britain and abroad.
