Trevelyan, Julian

Date: 1910-1988

A driving force behind the etching revolution of the 1960s as well as an important leader of modern print techniques, Julian Trevelyan moved to Paris in 1931 to become an artist.

Enrolling Stanley William Hayter‘s engraving school, Atelier Dix-Sept, Trevelyan first learned the etching techniques that he would teach at the Chelsea School of Art (1950-1955) and Royal College of Art (1955-1963). A highly influential teacher, with students including David Hockney and Norman Ackroyd; Trevelyan was also a founding member of the British Surrealist Group.

The University Art Collection holds one painting and three prints by Julian Trevelyan, on a variety of subjects.
