Artist Biography

Samuel Dodwell was a painter, draughtsman, teacher and broadcaster. He attended the Regent Street Polytechnic School of Art and began painting seriously after World War II. He was a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, and his work is in the Ruth Borchard Collection and the Guildhall Art Gallery, London. During World War II, he was a squadron leader in R.A.F with Bomber Command. After the Normandy landings and the cessation of hostilities, he returned to his stressful career with an American bank. After three major heart attacks, aged fifty-nine, his life was saved by pioneering open-heart surgery. From then on, he painted seven days a week.
