About the Free Painters and Sculptors
The Free Painters, Sculptors and Printmakers (formerly the Free Painters Group) has a unique place in British art. The group was established in 1952 and was originally associated with the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts).
The founding members featured many high profile and influential artists, including Roy Rasmussen, Lyall Watson and Maurice Jadot.
During the fifties and sixties, FPS played a significant part in the establishment of abstract art, being the first of a number of post war movements that freed artists from the orthodoxy of rigid and purely technical judgements.
The current FPS membership consists of an international collective of painters, sculptors and printmakers, who hold group exhibitions two times a year in some of London's most exciting commercial galleries.
