Alan Reynolds was a British painter born on 27 April 1926 in Suffolk, where his father worked as a stableman. He studied at the Royal College of Art from 1952 to 1953 before going on to teach at the Central School of Art and Design from 1954 to 1961 and then Saint Martin's School of Art, where he became a senior lecturer in painting in 1985. He lived and worked in Kent and was known first as a landscape painter, but changed to a totally abstract style from 1960 onwards. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the National Museum of Canada, the V&A and the Tate among others.
