Bryan Ingham was a contemporary of David Hockney at the Royal College of Art and like many of the brightest and best of his generation in the 60s, travelled to Italy on a Rome Scholarship.
Having spent the greater part of his working life in Cornwall, Ingham has inevitably become associated with the post-war Modern Movement in St Ives. However, much of his work goes beyond Nicholson and St Ives, to Cubism and the work of Picasso, Braque and Gris, from whom Nicholson himself had drawn extensively. Ingham found himself increasingly drawn to `carving and quarrying' copper etching plates and his print-making of the 70s and 80s is some of the finest of its kind in Britain.
