Born in 1923, Anthony Eyton RA has been painting and drawing for nearly 90 years. He is considered one of the very best English travel painters and the vibrancy and quality of his work has reaped many national awards and space in some of Britain’s finest public collections.
This documentary explores the life he has lived and how it has influenced the art he creates. He talks frankly about his early years at school and art college, his time in the army and the tragic family events that have had a deep and painful impact. This powerful narrative is illustrated with many of his paintings and personal photographs and we see him in the process of creating several new artworks.
He has committed himself to a life of painting and still works every day, seeking to find his voice, never standing still, never complacent.
