Arthur, or plain simple 'Art' as he was known to friends, was a shy, friendly countryman.... with a twinkle in his eye.
It was 1978 when I had the pleasure of meeting him in Somerset. He was very short and in his seventies, but still rode round the villages and lanes on a 250cc motor-cycle!! A lovely man and one of life's real characters.
( 'Art' was my subject for demonstrations in pastel portraiture carried out to audiences at the Art Material's Show held in the Design Centre, Islington, London, for the Artists & Illustrators magazine.
