A picture of a watercolour:
This exhibition marks the centenary of the birth Julian Cory-Wright (1916-1944).  

Julian Cory-Wright painted and sketched all his life. At school he learnt lino cutting & printing: his inspiration drawn from Brancaster, his much loved North Norfolk home. In London, as a young articled clerk with Deloittes on audit, he sketched the view out of clients’ windows.

After the outbreak of World War II, Julian spent four years training in gunnery in remote parts of Britain where he continued to draw and paint everyday military activities as well as the wild landscapes around him.

His last sketches were made shortly after D-Day on board the ship taking him to Normandy where he was to lose his life on 26th June .

'Wartime Watercolours' features Lino Cuts & Military Sketches, Landscapes of Brancaster, North Norfolk Coast, Northumberland, the Brecon Beacons and the Voyage to Normandy on D-Day +8.
