About the artist
Until his untimely death in May 2022, Peter Bishop was an accomplished landscape artist, writer and lecturer. He studied painting at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London from 1972 - 1975. In 1995 he obtained an MA in the History of Art (distinction) from BIAD, followed by a PhD from Aberystwyth University School of Art in 2001.
He was a lecturer in fine art at Shrewsbury School of Art from 1986 to 2003 and later taught landscape theory at the University of Birmingham.

He has held ten solo exhibitions and exhibited in many group shows including the Royal Academy of Arts Summer exhibitions. He was represented by the renowned Kilvert Gallery from 1987 to 2009. His work is in numerous public and private collections.

Peter painted Alpine subjects from 1975 to 1987. Since 1987 he had painted exclusively mountain views in Snowdonia. These paintings cover a wide range of approaches and are focused on an evocation of place based on both observational drawing and colour studies made on the spot.

These carefully chosen examples of Peter's work are printed to the highest standard of quality possible. The prints are limited editions and are titled, numbered and signed by the artist's estate in pencil.

Peter's book, 'The Mountains of Snowdonia in Art', published in 2015 and available on Amazon, explores a wide range of art works that have been made of the mountains of Snowdonia, covering a 250 year period from 1765 to the present day.
