Fry, Anthony
In his last year at Camberwell School of Art in 1950, Anthony Fry won a Rome Scholarship, which enabled him to spend two years travelling in Italy. This period marked the start of a working pattern of travel and response which has continued throughout his life. Over the years his visits to many parts of the world have proved crucial in the development of his art, for example in Italy he reacted not only to the masterpieces of the Renaissance, but also to the quality of light. This landscape was painted while Fry was teaching at Bath Academy of Art in Corsham. Ann Jones
