John Christopherson

John Christopherson (1921-1996) was a British painter of small dreamlike townscapes and distilled abstract paintings that combine an almost naïve intensity with great sophistication. He died in 1996 and the following year England & Co held a memorial exhibition accompanied by a publication about his life and work. His work is represented in the collection of The arts Council of Great Britain and his correspondence (including letters from Jean Dubuffet and Ithell Colquhoun) and archive are now in the Tate Archive, London.
