  • Artist - Maurice Cockrill - Biography
    Professor Maurice Cockrill, RA, FBA was a British painter and poet. Born in Hartlepool, he studied at Wrexham School of Art, then Denbigh Technical College and later the University of Reading. From 1964, he taught at Liverpool College of Art and Liverpool Polytechnic. He was a central figure in Liverpool’s artistic life, regularly exhibiting at the Walker Art Gallery, before his departure for London in 1982. Cockrill’s Liverpool work was in line with that of John Baum, Sam Walsh and Adrian Henri, employing Pop and Photo-Realist styles, but later he moved towards Romantic Expressionism. His poetry was published in magazines such as "Ambit" and "Poetry Review". He was formerly the Keeper of the Royal Academy, and as such managed the RA Schools of the Establishment.
