Richard (Dick) Lee (1923-2001) was a British artist born in what is now Zimbabwe. he studied at Clarkenwell School of Art under William Coldstream and Claude Rogers from 1947-50. His art was very much in the post-impressionist style. He favoured a figurative style (although there are a few abstract works) that is associate with Camberwell. He taught there from 1953 until 1982. His loose brushwork in various medium including oil, gouache and watercolour give his work a distinctive style. He did not follow avant-garde fashions during his career and as such his work, which is of the highest quality, remains somewhat underappreciated. He spent his later years painting in East Anglia and France.
