Bryan Wynter was a landscape painter and part of the St Ives group. Born on the 8th of September 1915 in London, he studied at Westminster School of Art in 1937-8 and at the Slade School from 1938-40. He settled at Zennor, near St Ives in 1945 and was co-founder of the Crypt Group. At first Bryan worked figuratively, but by 1956 had evolved a dynamic and more abstract style. His first solo exhibition was at the Redfern Gallery 1947 and taught drawing and painting at Bath Academy, Corsham, from 1949-56. He exhibited with the London Group from 1954, and with the Penwith Society, St Ives, between 1949-58. Nine of his works are in the Tate Collection, and fourteen are with the British Council.
