Bryan Kneale was born on the Isle of Man and studied at the Royal Academy Schools of Art.
He quickly became a very successful painter, exhibiting at the Redfern Gallery in the 1950s.
I have met several collectors who had the choice of a Bryan Kneale or Francis Bacon painting at the same price in the 1950s and all chose the Kneale.
In 1960 he stopped painting and moved to sculpture.
After a major one-man exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery [1966], he became the first abstract sculptor Royal Academician in 1974.
Public collections include the Tate Gallery and Museum of Modern Art [New York].
