Alfred Dunn

Born 1937 Wombwell, Yorkshire

Dunn is a sculptor, print-maker and teacher of art who studied initially at Barnsley and Leeds Schools of Art and subsequently at the Royal College of Art in London (1959 – 1961), later becoming a senior tutor there. He also taught at the Ravensborne College of Art in London and at the Royal Academy Schools.

His sculpture included kinetic works, one of which entitled ‘Quiet Noises’ made in 1967 is included in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art while other sculptures were acquired by the Manchester City Art Gallery and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

His main output seems to have been in the form of colour lithographs of abstract forms which he exhibited regularly at the Redfern Gallery in London in the 1960s and 1970s, showing work also at galleries in Germany and Italy. Eight of his prints are held in the Government Art collection, and he is also represented in the British Council Collection, the Government Art Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
