About 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.
