Bob Bourne (1931 - 2021)

Artworks | Biography

Bob Bourne was born in Exmouth, Devon and was evacuated as a child during the war years to Bermuda. His schooling was undertaken back in England at Brighton. Working now from a studio base in Penzance, Bob has had a variety of working environments in West Cornwall and elsewhere, including a spell in Perth, Australia.

Primarily a self-taught painter, Cross considers Bourne’s paintings in his chapter on ‘realism, imagination and phantasy’ artists, the combination of qualities and styles that Bob employs in his vivid and intense pieces.
