About the artist

Norman Ackroyd RA (born 1938), studied at Leeds College of Art and The Royal College of Art, London. He is one of Britains s foremost landscape artists and contemporary printmakers working today. He is known primarily for his monochromatic aquatints. Depending on the locale, atmospheric conditions and intended mood, his compositions are minimalist, giving an abstract, sometimes geometric impression. Often they depict or suggest naturalistic elements, e.g., hills, clouds, rainbows. Even when depicting rainbows, Ackroyd uses colour only very sparingly. Although his work almost never includes the human figure, the landscape subjects he prefers are often ones of age-old human habitation.
