Euan Uglow was one of the greatest figurative painters of the twentieth century, celebrated for his female nude and still life subjects.

 

Uglow was born on the 10th March in Norwood, South East London.  He studied at the Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts from 1948-51, where he was taught and influenced by William Coldstream and was awarded the David Murray Scholarship.  After receiving a state scholarship, he attended the Slade School of Art from 1951-4.  In 1952 he received a Spanish State Scholarship to work in Segovia, Spain and the following year won the Abbey Minor Scholarship or Prix de Rome, which enabled him to travel to France, Holland and Belgium before spending six months in Italy.  He returned to the Slade in 1954, but was called up for National Service after six months.  As a Conscientious Objector, Uglow was engaged in building work and farming.  Having completed his service, he took up part-time teaching at Camberwell and the Slade, moving into a studio in Battersea in 1959. 

 

He first exhibited with the London Group in 1956 and was elected a member in 1960.  In 1961 he held his first one-man show at the Beaux Arts Gallery.  He travelled extensively throughout his career, working in France, Italy, Morocco, Turkey, Cyprus and China.  He won the Edwin Austin Abbey Premier Scholarship in 1970 and two years later was awarded first prize at John Moores 8, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.  In 1990 he became an Artist Trustee at the National Gallery, London and an Honorary member of The London Institute in 1997.

 

The work of Euan Uglow is represented in many public collections including the Arts Council of Great Britain, the British Council, London, Tate Britain, London, National Museums and Galleries of Wales, Cardiff, Ferens Gallery, Hull, Glasgow Art Gallery, Scotland, Southampton City Art Gallery, Wakefield Art Gallery and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
