He grew up in Farleys Farm House, the old Sussex farmhouse his parents used to occupy in the village of Chiddingly. Life was a perpetual arts congress where British artists like Henry Moore, Eileen Agar, Richard Hamilton, John Craxton, and Kenneth Armitage mixed with leading figures from Europe such as Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Jean Dubuffet and where Pablo Picasso visited in 1950.

Under the surface of what seemed one long hedonistic gathering there was a hive of activity and some of the great achievements in modern art of the last century had Farleys Farm House as their start point.

Antony Penrose has written numerous books, articles and two plays on the subject of his parents and their associates. Broadcasting includes BBC Radio 4 Women’s Hour, Today and Front Row, and on television he has appeared on BBC’s The One Show, Flog It, The culture Show and on CNN. He is an accredited lecturer for The Arts Society, lecturing widely in UK and overseas. He is known as a curator of photography, and is an artist and film maker in his own right.
