John Lessore (English, born 1939)
John Lessore is a figurative artist, although he rarely paints from life. Instead he works from sketches and memories, often building up a composition over a long period of time. He was born in London and studied at the city’s Slade School of Fine Art, from 1957-61. On leaving he won a travelling scholarship to Italy. In 1965 he began teaching at the Royal Academy Schools, a post he held until 1999.
