Biographical history

Fyffe Christie was a student at The Glasgow School of Art from 1946-1951, under muralist Walter Pritchard. He was a teacher at Barking Abbey Comprehensive School, Barking in the later years of his life. Christie had a good career as an artist, perhaps most famous for his murals and work in Scotland. He followed the artistic developments of European Modernism closely - it is easy to see the influence of painters like Matisse and Cezanne on his later works.
