News of Anthony Green’s death is very sad. He was a pillar of the RA when I first went there – a stalwart member of Council and took over as chairman of the Exhibitions Committee. He had great knowledge and good humour, without any side and friendly with everyone.
Since I was in the neighbourhood, I went to see the exhibition of his work at Chris Beetles Gallery in Ryder Street. There are several self portraits, which in the circumstances are unbearably poignant:-
One thought on “Anthony Green RA (1)”
That is so sad. For many years I had a poster on my wall from his 1984 exhibition at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester. As I was an impoverished textiles student in Manchester at the time of the exhibition I must have really loved it to splash out on the poster. Good to read that he and Mary had such a long life together, even if it ended so sadly.
