Goodbye Dennis Creffield

Sadly, Dennis Creffield died on the morning of 26th June 2018; he was 87. We made two films with Dennis; one was the ‘Narrative' episode of our series Looking into Paintings, made for Channel 4 in collaboration with The Open University, in which he was the featured artist. We later filmed him as he worked on his commission to draw all the cathedrals of England.

In this extract from Looking into Paintings - Narrative, Dennis Creffield vividly expresses his views on how best to appreciate paintings, by quietly staying in front of them, and letting them come to you.
