Norman Meredith (1909-2005)
Meredith was born in Liverpool and studied at the Liverpool College of Art. He subsequently won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, where he studied painting under Sir William Rothenstein. He won a travelling scholarship and studied in Italy, France and Germany. Between 1947 and 1974 he lectured in Art at University College, Aberystwyth and gave visiting lectures at St Martins School of Art.
Meredith has contributed numerous illustrations to a large number of magazines including Punch, Tatler, The Sketch and The Bystander. His career as a children's book illustrator began when Enid Blyton asked him to illustrate her stories at the end of World War II. Since then he has illustrated over one hundred books, using pen and ink with Normantone. He has also designed textiles for Moygashel and Crowson Fabrics, tin box designs for the Metal Box Co., Hammersmith and greetings cards and gift-wraps for the Cavendish Card Co. Since 1978 he has concentrated on humorous full colour paintings of animals having anthropomorphic fun.

This is a large and fabulous painting that really pops in my Family Room above my television. The colors are intense and vivid with superb balance and detail. The frame as expected was in need of some refinishing which was fun as I further distressed it and applied a deeper color followed by light sanding creating a neat vintage look. Michael, the shop owner, is extremely responsive to communication and easy to work with. If you are looking for a 5 Star experience then shop here with confidence.

Gorgeous oil painting, even lovelier than pictured. I'm part Scottish, and am always on the lookout for quality items that evoke my family's history. This painting reminds me of my Nana - what higher praise can there be? Thank you for the product, as well as the ridiculously fast delivery! :)
