Trevor Newton (Lancashire,1959). He studied History of Art at Cambridge University and later became the first full-time teacher of the subject at Eton College. His work has been commissioned, exhibited and sold by leading auction house Christie’s, published by the Oxford University Press and has appeared in publications as diverse as Country Life, Harpers & Queen, The Independent on Sunday, The Literary Review and The Bookplate Collector’s Quarterly.
"From about the age of seven or eight I have been fascinated by architecture and by drawing in equal measure, and have always felt a need to record what I see on paper. Whenever I am travelling, I have the means of making a sketch on me in the form of a small pad and pen, and when something grabs my attention, out they come. A few lines often suffice to capture what I want and later I transfer these to a larger sheet of paper and begin to add the colour and mood which I feel will most enhance the subject. I like to ‘reconstitute’ my impressions and memories of a building on paper, combining the few bare bones of lines sketched on the spot with a lot of imagination and emotion added in the studio."
Newton recently returned to his home-town of Liverpool.
