Kefalonia by Sir John Hurt

Kefalonia by Sir John Hurt


John Hurt as Artist is the first exhibition anywhere in the world of the late screen legend’s paintings. Sir John Hurt painted all his life, at the age of 17 he attended The Grimsby Art School (now the East Coast School of Art and Design) and in 1959 won a scholarship to St. Martin's School of Art (now Central Saint Martin’s) in London. Most of the paintings in the exhibition have been loaned by his wife, Lady Anwen Hurt who said ‘Whenever anyone referred to John’s painting as a ‘hobby’ he was quick to point out that a painting was not something he did for relaxation or a bit of fun, he took it every bit as seriously as he took his acting career’.
