Item details

Bill Jacklin   [British 1943-]

Lived in Walthamstow and attended the local Art School in 1960. Due to financial difficulties he worked at Studio Seven in High Holborn, a advertising agency in High Holborn as a graphic artist. In 1962 he was able to complete his National diploma in Design. After leaving, he continued his education and went to the Royal College of Art where he studied under Alistair Grant. But by 1965 he changed from the design/ print making course and took up painting, his tutors being Carel Weight, Peter Blake, Ruskin Spear, D,Boshier among others. When he left in 1964 he exhibited with the London Group and worked briefly with Yoko Ono. Financial problems meant he had to work as a teacher which he enjoyed. He taught at various art colleges including Walthamstow, Harrow ,Byam Shaw and Chelsea. In 1970 after having a show at the Royal College he was asked to have a show at Nigel Green wood Gallery in Chelsea. It was through Greenwood that many British Art establishments like the Tate, British Museum, Arts Council and the Victoria and Albert purchased his art for their collections. By 1975 colour and representation started to reappear in his work using watercolour and oil. After a show at the Royal Academy Jubilee Show in 1977/8, Marlbourgh started to exhibit his work and became his dealer. In 1985 he had his first one man show in New York.

This was plate 51, as published in ‘A Tribute to Birgit Skiold’ , 1983.
