Stuart Maxwell Armfield Art

STUART MAXWELL ARMFIELD (ENGLAND, 1916–2000)

Stuart Maxwell Armfield was a British painter born in Sanderstead, Surrey, in 1916. He was renowned for his use of the traditional egg tempera technique, a skilled process that uses egg yolk to bind pigments, and which dates from the Byzantine world of the early Middle Ages. Armfield studied at the West of England College of Art. He showed at both the Royal Academy in London and with St Ives Society of Artists of which he was a member.


Encouraged by his successful artist uncle, Maxwell Armfield (1881–1972), Stuart took up the use of tempera (what he called ‘the be-all and end-all of painting’) and was very keen on promoting the use of such traditional skills through their use in the production of his pictures. He particularly favored the medium for its ability to depict clear lines, razor-sharp detail and bright color. He is perhaps best known for his vivid still life works.
