William Black worked either as or for an architect in a London office just after the Second World War to the early 1950’s. He inherited some money from a member of his family and decided to retire early to pursue his interest in art .He moved to the Newlyn area of Cornwall in the early fifties.


He was ,self taught ,not unusual as Ben Nicholson one Britain’s finest artists was also self taught I believe. He met some of the notable artists working there at the time ,presumably; Nicholson, Hepworth, Lanyon , Gabo etc who must have been influential and was I’m told an acquaintance of John Tunnard. Like Tunnard he remained outside of the artists’ groups and art scene there at the time.


I think he was a talented outsider who may have been overlooked.
