Julian Trevelyan 


It is the early work of Julian Trevelyan that we here at Blondes Fine Art really admire.  Julian Trevelyan is one of Englands most loved print makers. He had no formal art training as such , but joined Stanley Hayter's atelier in Paris in 1931 where he worked alongside  Miro and Picasso. As a result he turned to Surrealism and became a founding member of the British Surrealist Group. A selection of his paintings and etchings featured in the ground-breaking 'International Surrealist Exhibition' at the New Burlington Galleries, London in 1936. 

In 1937, Julian Trevelyan became involved in recording in detail the daily lives of ordinary people. This experience had a profound effect on his work.

Julian Trevelyan taught at both the Royal College of Art and the Royal College of art. Not only was he a highly influential teacher of David Hockney, Ron Kitaj and Norman Ackroyd, an important innovator of modern print techniques and  is increasingly regarded as the quiet driving force behind the etching revolution of the 1960s. Julian Trevelyan was married to Mary Fedden.
