Gowing, Lawrence (British painter and writer, 1918-1991)

Note: His early work followed the somber Euston Road tradition, although he created some abstract work. In 1976 he began making large paintings (with the help of an assistant) in which he traced the outline of his naked body stretched on the canvas. He also had a distinguished academic career in museum administration, writing, and teaching, notably at the Slade School, 1975-1985.
