Gordon House (1932-2004) was born in Pontardawe, South Wales and was well known as a printmaker, painter, and designer.  His family moved to Hertfordshire when he was young and he studied art at Luton, then St Albans, and later worked under an ecclesiastical sculptor.  He embarked on a career in the 1950s as a graphic designer and by the end of the decade was exhibiting his paintings in solo shows in London.  His reputation grew rapidly in the 1960s and in addition to his exhibited work he was commissioned to design album covers for The Beatles and later for Wings.  His paintings and prints were shown at numerous major exhibitions internationally, including the Royal Academy, the London Group, Redfern Gallery, Carnegie Institute, Brooklyn Museum, Waddington Galleries, etc, and are held in many public collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, British Council, Tate Gallery, and the Contemporary Art Society.
