Charles Duranty (1918-2006) was a landscape painter in watercolour, born in Romford, Essex.  He exhibited at many of the leading London galleries, including Roland, Browse & Delbanco; Mercury Gallery; Zwemmer Gallery; and had one man shows at the Leicester Galleries 1969, New Grafton Gallery 1970, and the Thackeray Gallery from 1971.  His obituary in The Guardian noted that his pictures 'were always imaginary East Anglian landscapes, with huge fields and somewhere a tiny animal, traction engine or human figure to give the picture a focus and, quite often, its title'. His work is held in the Government Art Collection and in provincial art galleries, and Charles Duranty lived near Guildford in Surrey.
