  • Artist - William Turnbull - Biography
    Born in Dundee in 1922 Turnbull began his artistic career as a designer and illustrator. He enrolled at the Slade School in 1946 but quickly became disillusioned with the institute's narrow teaching methods. He took refuge in the sculpture department and it was here that he met Eduardo Paolozzi. During the 1950's he was part of the influential International Group alongside Hamilton and Paolozzi.

    In 1952 he was included in New Aspects of British Sculpture at the Venice Biennale. He was influenced by the New American Painting especially Rothko and Barnett Newman and by 1957 had completely abandoned the figurative in his painted works. 1973 saw a major retrospective at the Tate Gallery and subsequently the Whitechapel and Serpentine. His work is held in major collections.
