Son of a lighterman, Gordon Beningfield grew up in London and is one of the last surviving artisans of a generation who served apprenticeships as ecclesiastical artists. Since the early 1960s, he has built a reputation as a landscape and natural history painter, and his work has reached wide audiences through his appearances on television and radio. This book is at once an autobiography and a celebration of Gordon Beningfield's art which, in addition to his well-known paintings, includes stained glass memorial windows for the Brigade of Guards in the Guards Chapel in London, sculpture and two sets of stamps for the British Post Office. He is an ardent campaigner for the conservation of the English countryside and in 1990 was made President of the British Butterfly Conservation Society.
