Artist Biography

Maurice Sochachewsky was a London painter, illustrator and draughtsman who studied at St. Martin's School of Art in the early 1930’s. He is best known for his paintings of the Welsh village of Tal-y-Wain and local collieries, painting numerous portraits of the miners and their families. His outlook was shaped by his experiences and observations of the working lives of the close-knit East End Jewish communities where he was raised. In 1948 Sochachewsky returned to this subject, illustrating two books by the journalist and writer Theo Lang including 'Cross Country', which describes a journey from Lands End to John O'Groats, and includes drawings of the Welsh miners. During World War II while serving in the British army with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Sochachewsky lost an eye. He continued to paint and exhibited regularly in group exhibitions with Ben Uri from 1944-47, then again throughout the 1950’s and early ’60s, holding a solo exhibition at the Ben Uri in 1969. Sochachewsky visited Israel in 1949, where he made a number of works and later retired to Kent where he died.
