Our Pall Mall Gallery will be closed this bank holiday but Cecil Court will open Saturday to Monday
Born in London, Greenham studied English at Magdalen College, Oxford before studying Fine Art at Byam Shaw. He was elected a member of the RA in 1960 and in 1964 succeeded Sir Henry Rushbury as Keeper of the Royal Academy Schools, a position he held with distinction until his retirement in 1985. He was an influential figure in the post-War generation of British artists having taught many well-known modern British artists including Martin Yeoman and Peter Kuhfeld. He served as President of the Royal Society of British Artists and was a prolific writer on art. He is perhaps best remembered as a portraitist and was commissioned by the Welsh Guards to paint H M the Queen in 1962. His work is represented in the collections of the Royal Academy and the Tate.
