Biography
Vincent Yorke attended the Slade School of Art, London from 1962-1966. He has had various minor solo shows and took part in a few mixed exhibitions, mainly in Brussels. He was artist in residence at Eton College from 1978 to 1980. He moved to Gloucestershire in 1981 and became more preoccupied by portraiture receiving many successful private commissions.<br> <br> Vincent Yorke is still compelled to find the sense of ‘Presence’ of a person or people in portraits, believing that this elusive quality of ‘Presence’ is the true purpose of painting. This comment might equally be applied to his still life painting though with a very different emphasis.<br>
