Peter Brook (1929-2009)

Biography of painter Peter Brook (1929-2009)

Peter Brook (1927-2009), 'the Pennine landscape painter', was born in the winter of 1927. Brook taught art at Sowerby School before becoming a full time artist in his 40s.

Brook painted many areas of the British Isles including Scotland, Cornwall and the Potteries, but his first love was the Pennines, particularly in Winter. His paintings depict a vanishing world; a world of remote farmhouses, of mills, of people who inhabit the landscape.

There are a number of books on Brook's work including Peter Brook - The Pennine Landscape Painter.

Brook lived in West Yorkshire near his beloved Pennines and favourite woods. He died in 2009.
