We are sad to be informed of the death of long time Member Brian Bradshaw in November 2016 at the age of 93 years…


As Professor of Fine Art at Rhodes University in South Africa, he was a strong influence on the development of fine art in South Africa and amongst other achievements, he founded the Grahamstown Group of Painters.

Just before he died he was made aware that the Arts Council of South Africa were honouring him with a permanent foundation for his work which will be held and exhibited in Pretoria.
