Christopher Penny's reputation as a fine-art printmaker led to limited-edition etchings from several British and American publishing houses. His intense figurative work was also about love of the landscape and its light. He was at one and the same time quite traditional in some of his views, but produced very contemporary-looking images. Chris Penny's reputation became international as he participated in many solo and mixed shows in Europe, America, Japan and Australia. The sultans of Oman and Brunei, the Duchess of Kent and Bill Wyman are among notable private buyers. Penny (1947-2001) was born in Blandford Forum, Dorset,  and studied at Bournemouth College of Art, 1964-68. and lectured at Harrow, Camberwell College of Art and for many years as head of printmaking at Byam Shaw School of Art in north London. Between 1972 and 1979, Penny contributed prints to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
