Peter Kuhfeld NEAC


(British, b.1952)

Peter Kuhfeld was born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire in 1952.  From 1972-76 he studied at Leicester School of Art.  Following his studies, he taught drawing and painting at the Rugby School of Art from 1976-78.  He continued his studies at the Royal Academy School of Art, where he worked under Peter Greenham CBE, RA from 1977-80.  In 1978, Kuhfeld was made a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Painters.  He won awards over the next few years for his landscapes as well as for his anatomical drawings.  In 1986, Kuhfeld was elected to be a member of the New English Art Club.  In 1992 he became an elected member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, which he resigned in 2005. 

          John Ward CBE, RP has described Kuhfeld as follows: “madly politically incorrect, he is a non-conformist with the courage and delicious skill to paint what delights him.”  Kuhfeld is praised for his fine draughtsmanship and his ability to create a balance between form and color.  

          Kuhfeld has frequently exhibited with the New English Art Club, the Discerning Eye, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition.  He was most recently a part of the John Cornforth Memorial exhibition for Sotheby’s, London.
