Lionel Bulmer (1919-1992) attended Clapham art school before war intervened; after the war he started again at the Royal College of Art which had been relocated during the conflict to Ambleside in the Lake District. Here he met his lifelong partner Margaret Green who provided the model for many of his works. They returned to London where they studied under painters such as Ruskin Spear and Carel Weight, successors to the Camden Town and Euston Road schools. In the 1950s they moved to West Suffolk and much of Bulmer’s work from this point on documents the Suffolk landscape and the coast at Aldeburgh and Walberswick.
