Algernon Newton (1880-1968) was a renowned British artist whose work was featured in both private and public collections around the world. He is best known for his landscapes and figurative works of modern life. He was particularly acclaimed for his subtle use of color and light, from impressionist landscapes to more abstract compositions of industrial landscapes. Examples of his most iconic works include The Valley of the Five Hills (1932), depicting a serene view of the English countryside, and The Cries of London (1937), an evocative portrait of post-war Britain. Newton was also influential in the development of British modernism and was a founding member of the London Group of artists.
