educated at St Paul’s School and served in the Army in World War I. He was early a member of an artistic set including E McKnight Kauffer, John Middleton Murry and D H Lawrence. Lett Haines was always an experimental artist whose work had a strong linear element and who admitted a big debt to Picasso. In 1918 he met the painter Cedric Morris and they lived together for 60 years as lovers, although it was sometimes a stormy partnership. A less consistent painter than Morris, Haines chose to take over the running of the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing household. As a teacher Haines believed in giving students freedom to develop along independent lines. There was a retrospective at Redfern Gallery, 1984. In 2002– 3, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery put on Cedric Morris & Lett Haines: Teaching Art and Life.

Painter, illustrator and teacher, born Hertfordshire, who studied at St Albans and Brighton Colleges of Art, graduating in graphic design in 1967, in 1968 moving to Pembrokeshire.

Haines occasionally held open studio in her 1996-converted barn on Bryn Morris hill farm, Rhosfach, Clunderwen. For many years she was almost exclusively a landscape painter, influenced by the British watercolourists, but in the early 1990s diverted towards architecture and musicians. She made drawings at rehearsals and masterclasses at the Royal Academy of Music in 1994, linked to a WAC bursary to research the relationship between painting and music. As well as prompting abstract paintings, this motivated Haines in 1993 to embark on a doctorate in the philosophy of aesthetics at the University of Wales, Lampeter. Haines exhibited extensively, including the WSW, RCamA, National Museum of Wales in Cardiff, Albany Gallery and St John’s Smith Square. There was a retrospective at the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, in 1996.

brought an awareness of modern art, especially that of Jacob Epstein, Eric Gill and Kennington, and encouraged development of a library of contemporary art books covering such topics as German Expressionism, Constructivism and revolutionary Russian art. In 1935 the School of Art merged with the Science and Engineering departments of the Technical College to become the Colchester and North East Essex Technical College and School of Art. Hart became responsible to Maurice Garside, the College’s principal, which seems to have prompted Hart’s resignation in 1936. A Colchester student of his, Joseph Robinson, remembered him as “full of ideas…about six foot four tall with thin wispy ginger hair and spectacles, and you could always go and talk to him”. From 1946–52 Hart showed a series of sculptures at the RA Summer Exhibition, living in Kew Green and then at East Molesey, Surrey. Moore and Hart had remained in contact, exchanging letters between 1949–51. Hart latterly created the inscription for Moore’s Claydon Madonna and was consulted about the pedestal for his Standing Figure. Abbott and Holder from 2002 offered a series of fine torsos by Hart.

He moved to Presteigne, on the Powys/Herefordshire border, to be near a sister and a Carmelite community, having converted to Roman Catholicism in 1968. He lived a retiring, frugal life in a small cottage. Although prolific, Hartley had scarcely exhibited until Bernard Samuels, director of Plymouth Arts Centre, began showing his work, giving him a solo exhibition in 1976. Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, John Hansard Gallery in Southampton, Newlyn Gallery and Bath Festival Gallery followed, as well as regular shows at Beaux Arts, Bath. In Presteigne, Hartley continued to produce and exhibit; at his death, he left 900 paintings and 300 notebooks to Samuels. Hartley spent a lifetime reading and meditating on the purpose of painting, producing humorous, colourful, apparently naïve images with a countryman’s eye for birds, insects and animals. Influences included Bonnard, Matisse and Proust, like whom he sought to regain the freshness of a childhood vision. Hartley was uninterested in personal success, giving much of his money to the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund. Tall, thin and constitutionally frail, he died of selfneglect and malnutrition. There was a memorial show in Presteigne, 1997, and exhibitions at Alpha House Gallery, Sherborne, 1998, Norfolk and Norwich Festival, 1999, and Exeter Phoenix Gallery, 2000, with a retrospective at Victoria Art Gallery, Bath, 2002, and another survey exhibition at Southampton City Art Gallery, 2004.

After this they went on to investigate the light-sensitive properties of seedling grass, working with the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research. In 2003 the Welsh National Eisteddfod, at Welshpool, commissioned its first contemporary artwork from Harvey and Ackroyd, in which light was projected through negatives onto giant sheets of germinating stay-green grass provided by the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research at Aberystwyth; the two artists also showed a wallmounted stretch of grass with the image of a large bull.

Much of Harvey’s later life was spent at the maternal family home at Meifod, Powys, where he farmed, although he died in Rome. Harvey was deeply influenced by his friend, Henry Moore.

Heard’s work, which had a strain of uneasiness, celebrated popular figures such as the actor Terry-Thomas, the actress Barbara Windsor and comedian Max Miller. He wanted it to be like “a slap in the face”. The later large circular canvases of Strange Fruit were brighter, more playful, with less of an uncomfortable message. Dressed like a skinhead, Heard was an advocate of his friend artist and writer David Robilliard’s work, admired the plays of Joe Orton and sought to interpret the culture of the 1950s and 1960s.

John HEARTFIELD 1891–1968 Versatile politically committed artist of the left, born Helmut Herzfeld in Berlin Schmargendorf, Germany; he adopted the name John Heartfield in 1916 because of the German political slogan “May God Punish England”, regarding it as war-mongering. His parents, both politically active, abandoned Heartfield, his brother and sisters, in 1899. In 1905, after elementary school, Heartfield began an apprenticeship in Wiesbaden; studied at the Royal Bavarian Arts and Crafts School, Munich, 1908; in 1912 worked as a commercial artist for a printing firm in Mannheim; in 1913 studied at the Arts and Crafts School in Berlin under Ernst Neumann; then during world War I spent a short period in the Army until a feigned nervous breakdown prompted his release and he was able to run a publishing company with his brother Wieland. In 1918 Heartfield, by then director of the Military Educational Film Service (later UFA), became a member of the Berlin Club Dada and joined the Communist Party with Wieland and George Grosz. The 1920s and early-1930s saw Heartfield hectically active, responsible for book-jackets, typography and layout, articles, set designs, posters and photomontages, associated with radical leftwing groups, spending some time in the Soviet Union. With the Nazi takeover in 1933 Heartfield fled to Prague, then to England in 1938, where in 1939 he became involved with the AIA and Free German League of Culture, which honoured his fiftieth birthday in 1941, the year after he was interned as an enemy alien and became severely ill. Worked as a designer for publishers such as Penguin Books, and as a freelance cartoonist. In 1950 Heartfield returned to Leipzig to continue his work, and a first comprehensive exhibition of this in the German Democratic Republic was held in 1957, when Heartfield moved to Berlin. After growing recognition – there were exhibitions around Europe in 1964–5 – he died there. In 1992 there was an exhibition at the Barbican Art Gallery.

and abstract figures in bronze, stone and wood.

Married the sculptor John Skeaping in 1924, marriage dissolved 1933, and exhibited with him. In Rome had learned the technique of carving. In the early 1930s her interest in abstract sculpture developed, encouraged by several developments. She had met the painter Ben Nicholson in 1931 – marrying him shortly afterwards, marriage dissolved 1951 – and with him visited the studios of Arp, Brancusi, Braque, Picasso and Gabo. Hepworth in the 1930s became

a member of several forward-looking groups, such as the 7 & 5 Society, Unit One and AbstractionCreation. In 1939 Hepworth moved to St Ives, Cornwall, where she became an influential member of the artistic community, being a founder-member of the Penwith Society in 1949. In 1947–8 she had made her notable series of drawings of operating theatres, and in 1949 a first one-man show of drawings at Durlacher Bros, in New York, extended her growing reputation. Two works were commissioned for the Festival of Britain in 1951 and she won second prize in The Unknown Political Prisoner competition two years later. Although in the 1950s she was to design décor for productions at the Old Vic theatre and for Covent Garden opera house, she was to concentrate on consolidating her position as Britain’s premier female sculptor, being given several retrospective exhibitions, including Tate Liverpool and Art Gallery of Ontario, Canada, 1994–5, Robert Sandelson, 2001, and centenary shows at New Art Centre at East Winterslow, Yorkshire Sculpture Park at West Bretton, Wakefield Art Gallery and Tate St Ives, all 2003, and having work purchased by major international galleries.

After returning to England in 1925 they rented cottages in the west of England, in 1927 settling in Cookham, Berkshire, where she lived with Patricia Preece until she died, even during Preece’s bizarre marriage to the painter Stanley Spencer, which she sought to discourage. Much of Patricia Preece’s output is known to be by Dorothy Hepworth, especially the later work, but how much is unclear. A studio sale at Christie’s in 1984 encompassed 500 paintings and over 1,500 drawings from

111

Dorothy Hepworth’s studio; these included studies of girls, still lifes and landscapes, especially of the Cookham area.

where he became principal lecturer. A flirtation with abstract painting then in vogue left him dissatisfied and Herbert returned to figurative painting through etching. A British Councilfinanced trip to the Far East directed Herbert’s mind to Biblical subjects – he was a Catholic convert, long interested in Buddhism – which led to a series of small but powerful pictures in a quasiprimitive style. Solo shows included retrospectives at England & Co, 1999 and 2004. In that later exhibition Herbert’s pictorial reflections on his earlier life were included. Lived at Cliftonville, Dorking, Surrey.

Commercial artist, illustrator, painter and bibliophile, born in Naetirisch Ostrak, Austria (later Czechoslovakia), into a middle-class but uncultured family. His small stature made him a bookworm, and through a strong character and intelligence he developed knowledge of book collecting and talents for painting and drawing while studying law. When Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia Herz fled without his family to Poland, then England, arriving in 1939. Became a freelance commercial artist, a job he always disliked, although he went on to illustrate many books on Jewish subjects and books for children. From 1947 he joined his lifelong friend V V Rosenfeld in a commercial art business. The work eliminated time for his own painting. In 1945 Herz tried to commit suicide through a drugs overdose, having heard his mother had been murdered by the Nazis. He was resuscitated, but the experience clouded the rest of his life. Became an obsessive and knowledgeable book collector who specialised in sixteenth-century volumes, old and first editions of the Greek and Roman classics, English literature of the eighteenth century and art.

I J Berthe HESS 1925–

Versatile artist and teacher, born in Tressow, Germany, full name Countess Elisabeth von der Schulenburg, who, as daughter of Count Friedrich von der Schulenburg, grew up among the Prussian nobility. She was sometimes known as Tisa Schulenberg, apparently a corruption of Teaser, a nickname bestowed on her by a governess. She spent her infancy in London where from 1902–6 her father was military attaché. Back in Germany, Tisa attended the Berlin Academy of Arts and the sculpture classes of Fritz Klimsch and, against her father’s wish, studied art in Paris, 1925–8. After the rise of Adolf Hitler, with her husband from 1929, the wealthy businessman and art collector Fritz Hess, she left Germany in 1934 for London. They had a house in Highgate, she was a friend of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, who encouraged her to carve, and joined the anti-Fascist AIA. The Hesses also lived in Walberswick, Suffolk, at the invitation of Ernst Freud, son of Sigmund, father of Lucian, Clement and Stephen. Ernst designed a house for them, Oak Barn, later renamed Elphinstone Corner, overlooking the marshes. Julia Reisz, widow of the film director Karel Reisz, recalled Tisa as a striking figure, beautiful and blonde in a bikini. She was encouraged to visit Northumberland, where she taught at The Spennymoor Settlement. Mines and miners became a focus of her work, which continued later in the Ruhr area of Germany. After divorcing Hess in 1938 she went back to Germany, where she later remarried. In 1939 her German links prevented her return to Britain, the AIA unsuccessfully campaigning for her readmittance. Tisa was opposed to Nazism, as was her brother Fritz, who was brutally hanged after the failure of the 1944 plot to assassinate Hitler. Following a failed marriage to Carl Ulrich von Barner, 1939–46, in 1948 Tisa converted to Catholicism and entered the Ursuline convent at Dorsten, adopting the name Sister Paula, but continued to sculpt, paint and draw, latterly publishing several books of memoirs.

turned his hand to restoration and became a selftaught heraldic sculptor. Among Sir David’s many monuments was the 400-year-old house of his mother’s family in Wilburton, Cambridgeshire, which he restored, plus many artefacts such as his bronze of Christ, a memorial for his cousin, Beauchamp Pell, in St Peter’s Church, Wilburton. Hughes was educated at Oundle School and Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he read

French and Russian. For 11 years he was in the export team at Pye Unicam, selling scientific instruments to the Eastern Bloc. In 1970 he succeeded his father, the 13th baronet, leaving Pye three years later when Beauchamp Pell invited him, his wife and their four sons to live at the family home, The Berristead, which had been tenanted, provided they restored it. This prompted Hughes’s creative nature and he modelled small sculptures in wax, then cast in solid metal. In 1979 he commercialised this interest by buying the ailing firm Louis Lejeune, producers of bronze and silver ornaments and car mascots, relocating the business to Wilburton. He expanded the company’s range by sculpting bespoke heraldic trophies, table decorations and other items. Commissions included candle sconces for Ely Cathedral’s choir stalls; four bronze eagle finials for the Great West Door of Westminster Abbey; an Eagle for the wand of the verger of St John’s College Chapel, Cambridge; and a lion rampant, presented to Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother when she opened Leech Hall, University of Durham. In his early sixties Hughes took to furniture-making and woodcarving. He was a member of the Art Workers’ Guild. Painter, born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, who evolved a style of work that initially involving covering his panels in gold leaf on which he then painted. The underlying gold gave his colour added intensity, not unlike the effect achieved by early Dutch masters who worked on copper panels, and Hughes additionally let the gold shine through the pigment in selected parts. He showed regularly at the RUA and RHA, was included in the 2005 Oakham Galleries Ltd Spring Exhibition and took part in other London and American mixed shows. Hughes had several solo exhibitions in Ireland and Dallas, Texas. The Ulster Museum in Belfast and several corporate collections held his work.

208

in Muswell Hill. Although trained at St Martin’s School of Art, Hughes worked for the capital’s water board in an administrative capacity, a chore which enabled him to live and pay for his painting materials. A longstanding friendship with the painter Edward Bishop was important. With his companion Kathleen, Hughes travelled in France and Italy, producing drawings and watercolours of landscapes and café scenes which he would work up later into oil paintings. These, like his sensitive portraits, can be small and quite dark. Hughes, an exhibiting member of the NEAC, was very leftwing, a hater of the Establishment, who did, however, exhibit three landscapes at RA Summer Exhibitions between 1954–61.

7. Her welded-steel figures were said to “portray the joy and pain of life and explore the interface between light and matter.

Barnard Castle, County Durham. He studied at Winchester School of Art, West Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham and at Chelsea School of Art. Went on to teach at Chelsea and at colleges in the northeast of England.

One-man shows included Galerie Brigitte Hilger, Aachen, 1983; Graeme Murray Gallery, Edinburgh, and Bede Gallery, Jarrow, 1985; and Galerie Hoffman, Friedberg, 1987. Reacting against free, gestural painting surrounding him at art school in the 1970s Hugonin sought a style by which he could create work balanced “between extreme complexity of means

213

on the one hand and the apparent simplicity of the overall image on the other”. Tiny fragments of colour created a texture with sweeps and rhythm, the visual equivalent of music, with a Zen-like stillness. Hugonin was a slow worker, completing one picture a year, as seen in the sparse survey of three years’ work at Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh, in 2002. James Hugonin and Ian Stephenson: And our eyes scan Time, at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in 2006, was curated by Hugonin.

His first paintings were Surrealistic, but this changed to a Constructionist style using pure colour and basic geometrical shapes. With the help of Herbert Read Hull had his first exhibition in the Brook Street Gallery in 1949, then his reputation as a member of the avant-garde grew as he showed at Gimpel Fils and painted his mural The Story of Coal for the Festival of Britain’s Dome of Discovery in 1951.
