Alfred Daniels

Alfred Daniels was born in London̛̛s East End in 1924. In the late 1940̛̛s 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 1950̛̛s British paintings at London̛̛s 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.
