Fred Lawson (1888-1968):
A landscape painter. Fred was born at Yeadon, near Leeds. He studied at Dewsbury and Leeds Schools of Art. On a visit to Wensleydale in 1910 with George Graham, they decided to settle there and shared a studio for several years. Fred married the young Muriel Metcalfe of Leyburn in 1933, who was also a painter.
Exhibited at the R.A., R.I. and at numerous exhibitions of Yorkshire artists. Contributed illustrations to The Dalesman from the first issue and for ten years wrote a monthly feature for the magazine. Illustrated several books, including a number by Dorothy Una Ratcliffe.
Travelled in France and Holland, but most of his work depicts the scenery and life of Wensleydale. One of the most fluent and spontaneous water-colourists of his time, he was particularly adept at capturing autumnal tints. A close friend of many Yorkshire artists including Jacob Kramer, Henrietta Lister and George Jackson. His daughter Sonia Lawson is also a painter of high repute.
A retrospective exhibition was held in Middlesbrough Art Gallery in 1969. He was the founder and leading member of the Castle Bolton group of artists. Died in Castle Bolton, Redmire, where he had lived for nearly sixty years.
