George Hooper RBA (1910-1994) was a painter in oil and watercolour mainly of landscapes and still life subjects. He was born in India and came to live in England in 1922. Hooper studied art at the Slade School 1930-31, Royal Academy Schools 1931-35, and from 1935-38 in Madrid and Italy. He exhibited frequently at the Royal Academy from 1932, with the New English Art Club from 1949, at the Royal Society of British Artists, the London Group, and with the Leicester Galleries. He had a retrospective show at Charleston in Sussex (the former home of his friend Duncan Grant) and at Michael Parkin Fine Art 1995. Hooper's work is represented in the Victoria and Albert Museum by numerous examples from the wartime Recording Britain series and in a number of other public galleries.
