Edward Wesson
1910 - 1983

Edward Wesson was one of Great Britain's most outstanding 20th Century watercolorists. He began painting at the age of 20, and was elected
a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour in 1952.

An energetic teacher, Wesson wrote articles for The Artist and Leisure Painter magazines, and tutored painting holidays.

Few other watercolor artists could produce such a stimulating piece of work with the efficiency of Edward Wesson. Wesson's teaching courses at Philipps House, Dinton, required joining a waiting list usually of three years or more.
