A SKETCH FROM MEMORY OF IVOR CUNNINGHAM

  • Comment
LETTERS

I worked with Ivor Cunningham in my formative years for a time in East Moseley, and was sad to read in the AJ of his passing away.

The strongest image I have of him is one quite often repeated of Ivor: at his drawing board munching away at a ham sandwich, unable to let go of his ideas for one moment, drawing furiously with his soft charcoal pencils while holding said sandwich with the blackest of black hands, oblivious to everything around him. I also remember him talking about colour, texture, volume and smells in his landscaping schemes.

May I suggest that some of his sketches/drawings feature in a future AJ. They were truly remarkable and a far cry from the sad little 'sketches' that have been appearing in your publication.
