Draughtsmanship dissected - the genius of Peter G. Cull

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 5th Mar 2013

Peter Cull (1927-2012) was a consummate medical artist, visionary, intellectual, educator, mentor, colleague, humourist, friend and devoted family man.

In this celebration of Peter Cull’s life and work, reproductions of his inimitable paintings will be displayed. Cull created appealing renderings of accurately depicted anatomy, with a hint of the fantastic: vibrant, informative, relevant.

He was elected chairman of the Medical Artists’ Association of Great Britain three times and chairman of the Institute of Medical Illustrators twice.
