Carel Weight PortraitCarel Weight (1908-1997) was one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century. He studied at Goldsmiths as a youth and was making a living as a painter even before he was made an Official War Artist, which was to inform much of his later work.

He became one of the most popular of all teachers at the Royal College of Art. His pupils include David Hockney, Peter Blake, Ron Kitaj. As he said, "my job was not to teach them how to paint - but to teach them how to paint what they want to paint".

A friend to many - he arranged to have Lowry elected to the Academy - and to numerous artists that he helped to promote, Weight exhibited at virtually every major venue worldwide. His work is held in every important collection of Modern British art including HRH Queen Elizabeth, Tate Gallery, The Fitzwilliam and Ashmoleon Museums, Imperial War Museum, Vatican collection and British Museum.
