Clarke’s world of inspiration

Lists of artwork by Geoffrey Clarke (1924-2014) can read like a travelogue. One of the most frequently publicly commissioned British artists of his day, his works include stained glass windows in Coventry Cathedral, aluminium panels in the Guards Chapel of Wellington Barracks in London, two large sculptures for a bank in Minnesota and stained glass panels for Majlis in Abu Dhabi.

Originally from Derbyshire, Clarke studied at the Royal College of Art. After RAF service, he became, at 27, the youngest artist to show at the historic British Pavilion in the 1952 Venice Biennale (alongside artists such as Lynn Chadwick and Kenneth Armitage). He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1976 and produced much of his later commission work from a foundry in the barn of his Suffolk home.
