MICHAEL AYRTON (British / 1921-1975)

The painter, sculptor, and novelist Michael Ayrton was born in London. Ayrton was his middle name (also his mother's surname); he was born Michael A. Gould, and signed his early work Michael Ayrton G. Ayrton was associated with John Minton and other Neo Romantics, although Ayrton's art was darker and more expressionistic than that of most of the group. Ayrton was obsessed with the myth of the Minotaur.
