Dr. Leonard McComb, RA, HonRP, HonRWS
3rd August 1930 – 19th June 2018
I am saddened to tell everyone that that most distinguished artist Len McComb has passed away.
His Arts Council exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in 1983 enabled us to see the range of his interests and passions.The extraordinary use of scale in his drawings, worked on in situ and continued in his studio. It was in the exhibition that he showed some of the lovely drawings he had done of the San Marco horses, that had been lent to the RA from Venice. A tour de force of observation and feeling.
Later in his life he completed two very beautiful mosaics for Westminster Cathedral; again one can see his passion for colour and design.
He will be greatly missed as a sculptor, painter and a fine draughtsman.
