He won the âAnne Berry Award' in open competition with all final year graduates throughout leading art schools in 1963. A series of one man shows in the early 80's, both in the West Country and London were invariably sold out. An exhibitor of both the Royal Academy and the Royal West of England Academy, Arthur won the Cornellisen Award in 1987.
Arthur is increasingly recognized as being a leading exponent of contemporary Impressionism, recognizing his roots that reach out beyond Monet to the Book of Kells and Gothic stained glass, in this sense his aims are those of Cezanne, which is to convert our experience of momentary sensations into something lasting, thoughtful and timeless.
The exhibition represents a wide range of Arthur's most successful subject matters, which include a striking Somerset painting, âAlmost Sunset Towards the Mendip', with it's rural landscape, dominated by poppies and meadow flowers.
