Bryan  Ingham
1936 - 1997

Ingham's reclusive character did not help his artistic career and it was only towards the end of his life that he started to get exhibited by significant galleries, and receive the recognition he deserved. Although he made quite a large body of etchings, many of these were not editioned, so, although it is easier to find his prints than it used to be, they are still quite rare.
Born in Lancashire in 1936, Ingham studied at St. Martin’s School of Art
and the Royal College of Art in London from 1957 to 1964, and then
at the British Academy in Rome in 1966
Ingham’s work engages with the crucial period of Cubism from 1912-1916
and the work of Picasso, Braque and Gris in particular. However, his
interests and inspirations are diverse and include the work of Kurt Schwitters,
Robert Rauschenburg, Georgio Morandi and even Piero della Francesca.
Much of his imagery concentrates on both real and implied space within
the surface of the picture – often entailing relief and collage. It is perhaps of
little surprise that he found an affinity with ‘carving and quarrying’ plates
as an etcher. Cornwall became his adopted home – although he spent time in
Northern Germany – and at times Ingham’s work is reminiscent of
Ben Nicholson in terms of both subject matter and treatment
Ingham died in 1997.
