Harry Ousey, born in 1915 in Manchester, is considered an important representative in the British 20th century art scene.
Harry, an abstract artist, who was inspired by the dry stone walls and quarry faces of Derbyshire and seascapes of Cornwall before moving to France in 1976. His work was included in an exhibition at Salford in 1948, with the pieces chosen by L S Lowry and numerous solo exhibitions followed in London in the 1960’s. In 2015 Salford Art Gallery marked the centenary of the painter's birth exhibiting many of his ‘lost works’ which will be on display in the Nicholson Gallery.
