Harry Holland, British (b.1941)

Artist's Biography

Harry Holland is widely regarded as one of Britain’s best craftsmen, producing technically brilliant and very beautiful paintings. His style is distinctive and immediately recognisable, something which every artist seeks. The paintings are suggestive in the sense that they imply situations, events, or relationships that are not directly expressed; this imbues them with an engaging sense of mystery. A master of painting, Holland works with uncompromising commitment and sincerity to produce art that is intense and rewarding. 

Born in Glasgow in 1941 he spent his childhood in various parts of the UK settling in London in 1949. He trained at St. Martin’s School of Art from 1965 to 1969. In 1973 he moved to Cardiff where he lives and paints today.

His work is in many corporate and private collections worldwide. His works are also in the following public collections:
