Tadek Beutlich was a polish-born textile artist who was most renowned for his bold tapestries and prints. His print work often directly inspired his tapestries, working with his original designs to create dynamic textile works.
Beutlich studied on a scholarship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan before the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939. He was made a German citizen and drafted into the army in 1941. He was captured by allies and held as a prisoner of war before being released to join the Second Polish Corps ran by the British army.
After the war he moved to Britain and studied painting and drawing at the Sir John Cass Technical Institute, transferring to Camberwell School of Art and Crafts to obtain a degree in textiles in 1950. During his time studying he met many other prolific textile artists such as Barbara Sawyer and Margaret Leischner.
Beutlich was inspired by large scale, dramatic works and many of his pieces in the 1950's and onwards incorporated bright colours and bold motifs. He lived and working in Ditchling, East Sussex between 1967 and 1974, a small village with a strong connection to the Arts and Crafts movement. Ditchling Museum of Arts and Crafts held a retrospective of his work in 2017.
