Born 1931, London. Martin Bradley is the very antithesis of the modern day 'career artist'. His early life was an eventful one. After running away to sea at fourteen, he took the London art world by storm in 1954 with a solo exhibition at the Gimpel Fils Gallery, aged just 23. A distinguished but chequered career was to follow. One of our most outstanding post war artists ...with work in the collections of the Tate and MOMA, New York.
