Edward MiddleditchComposition in Blue
painted circa 1969
In the 1950's Edward Middleditch had a series of shows at Beaux Arts Gallery alongside John Bratby and Derrick Greaves, latterly coined the Kitchen Sink Group. Over time his work became increasingly abstract but his decorative response to nature continued. He was elected into the RA in 1973 and became Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools between 1984-86.
