Maurice Randall

Maurice Randall (c1865-1950) was a local born man, who ran away to sea at the age of 14. He painted as a hobby throughout his maritime career, and then at the age of thirty he became a full time artist, specialising in Marine paintings and portraits. Randall's new career proved so successful that in the 1920s he was invited to Buckingham     Palace to show one of his paintings to King George V. He left his London Studio in 1939 to live in Walberton, Sussex. In 1944 Maurice was one of the founding members of the Downland Art Society, which is still going strong today.
