CATALOGUE NOTEBorn in Newcastle in 1934, Rumney was brought up in Halifax, the
son of a vicar. Intellectually precocious, his avant-garde
inclinations took him to Paris and Europe where he managed to
seemingly meet everyone of note. His first one man exhibition in
England was at the New Vision Gallery in London in 1956, and the
following year he was the sole British participant in the founding
of International Situationiste. He was subsequently expelled in
1959, although he remained in contact with many of his fellows
throughout his life and has accounted for him being rather better
known outside Britain. By the early 1960s he had become
disillusioned with the gallery system and worked predominantly as a
writer and broadcaster, mostly in France.
His artistic output was relatively large, although much is now
lost as a result of his travels and the fact that, as his friends
recalled, his finances and living conditions fluctuated wildly.
However, this mildly peripatetic life outside Britain has meant
that until recently his work was much overlooked. His paintings
from the 1950s have a very distinctive character which naturally
carries a good deal of European feeling, and offers a very useful
reminder that British art of the period could be a good deal more
cosmopolitan than is sometimes remembered.
