b. 1930 in Abinger, Surrey, U.K.
Robyn Denny belongs to a legendary group of artists who had transformed British art in the late 1950s, leading it into the international mainstream. Between 1950 and 1954 Denny studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in Paris, France, and at the Royal College of Art in London, England, during the mid-1950s among a generation of artists that included Richard Smith and Alan Green. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1957, he was awarded a scholarship to study in Italy.
Upon the completion of his studies, Denny taught part-time at Hammersmith School of Art in London, England, Slade School of Art in London, England, and the Bath School of Art and Design in Bath, England. He has led an active and distinguished career that has included participation in ground-breaking exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States; they include shows at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, England, in 1959, and the RBA Galleries in London, England, in 1960, as well inclusion in the Venice Biennale of 1966 and a retrospective at the Tate Gallery in London, England, in 1973.
