Life Of An Artist

This England - - Post Box -

eep on with your good work In the Spring uar­terly 201 ’s Cor­nu­copia, “Coun­try­side Artist Gor­don Ben­ing­field” re­minded me of “In mem­ory of Gor­don Ben­ing­field” in This Eng­land, Au­tumn 199 by Robin Page (I still have the page of Mr Page’s trib­ute to G. Ben­ing­field).

I wrote to Robin Page and he kindly wrote back and told me of Gor­don’s work and drive in try­ing to save some of our van­ish­ing coun­try­side linked with the Coun­try­side Restora­tion Trust he was a Vice-chair­man.

I long ago bought three of GB’S books “Ben­ing­field’s But­ter­flies”, his “English Land­scape” and “The Artist And His Work” all so in­for­ma­tive as well as be­ing beau­ti­ful in art.

So thank you for in­clud­ing the ar­ti­cle by Den­nis Fur­nell in Cor­nu­copia.

Joy Shep­pard, or­bury.
