William Ware

William Ware is a notable modern British artist who began painting at the age of nine as a means of self-expression, having broken his back in childhood - which led to almost continuous hospitalisation until the age of sixteen. During the Second World War he painted and sketched the Blitz, depicting bombing raids, and rescue and salvage crews at work. A number of these atmospheric, impressionistic, but sombre paintings were later purchased by the Imperial War Museum to form part of its permanent collection.

He opened his own gallery and studio after World War 2, and exhibited widely at venues such as the Royal Academy, Royal Portrait Society, New English Art Club, Barbican Art Gallery, Royal West of England Academy, and at many private galleries. In 1974 he was commissioned to paint Dr Donald Coggan’s enthronement as Archbishop of Canterbury.
