"George Rowlett Painter, born in Troon, Ayrshire. Rowlett’s landscapes and seascapes were singular in their bold brush strokes, sweeps of the palette knife and thick impasto, capturing the essence of a scene. He studied at Grimsby School of Art, 1960–2, Camberwell School of Art, 1962–5, and Royal Academy Schools, 1965–8. At Camberwell he won the Samuel Jones Fellowship, 1965–7, in 1966 gaining the David Murray Travelling Scholarship and Auerbach Criticism Prize. In 1967 a Silver Medal for Painting, First Landseer Prize, Landseer Scholarship and David Murray Travelling Scholarship followed. In 1984 Rowlett gained the Oppenheim–John Downes Memorial Trust Award. Rowlett showed widely, including RA, Camden Arts Centre, Whitechapel Open and overseas." from
