Maurice Feild (1905-1988) was an English painter and teacher, a close associate of the Euston Road School, and an influential teacher at the Slade School of Art, after studying there in the 1920s. He was a colleague and friend of W. H. Auden in the early 1930s. Before teaching at the Slade, Feild taught at The Downs, a Quaker preparatory school at Colwall near Great Malvern where he remained until after the World War II. He joined the Slade School in 1954 at the invitation of Sir William Coldstream, who later wrote a tribute to Feild's work as painter and teacher. Sir Coldstream also helped him to organise a retrospective at the Upper Grosvenor Galleries in 1970. Lawrence Gowing was reported to have described Feild as "among the unsung influences on British painting". During his time teaching Feild encouraged his pupils to paint with direct sincerity in the open air, and the many English painters who studied under him included Kenneth Rowntree, Lawrence Gowing, Andrew Forge, Patrick George, Anthony Hill, Anthony Fry, and Francis Hoyland. During his career Feild showed his work at Cooling's and Walker's Galleries and latterly at Austin/Desmond Fine Art. His works are represented in a number of public collections.
