Jack Pountney 1921-1997

Pountney was a ‘formidable artist as well as a subtle one’. He loved painting views of London’s old Docklands, the Thames at Greenwich, the Medway estuary and the sea on the Kent coast.
He lived and worked for most of his life near the Thames at Blackheath. One of his earliest pictures was a painting of HMTS Monarch in 1959. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1967, and regularly with the Royal Society of Marine Artists.
He built up a considerable reputation, and in 1972 he had a solo show in Greenwich, and often exhibited at other London galleries. He then moved further afield painting scenes in Dorset and Cornwall. He spent the later years of his life in Dorset. Following his death in 1997, the Manser Gallery in Shrewsbury held a very successful exhibition of his work.
