(b London, 30 Sept. 1939). British painter. He specializes in scenes from his own middle-class domestic life portrayed with loving attention to detail and an engaging sense of whimsy. Often he uses oddly shaped canvases that accentuate his strange perspective effects, and his subjects are frequently erotic as well as humorous. His work, which is often on a large scale, is instantly recognizable and is generally highly popular with the public at the Royal Academy summer exhibition, for he vividly communicates the loving feeling he puts into his paintings.
