Brian Horton studied at Cheltenham College of Art. After a career in the City of London and as a picture restorer, he turned to full time painting. His main subjects are the English countryside and coast and his pictures have an ethereal, visionary quality. Horton’s main gallery has been Messum’s, which has given him a number of solo shows in recent years and included his work in its Twentieth Century British Art exhibition in 2005. Horton has also shown at the Royal Academy and the Royal Watercolour Society.
