Introduction

Ronald Falck was first discovered as a child prodigy by the Vicar of Ecclesfield Church, when he was drawing the Church, who offered him a bursary to build a Portfolio to apply for a Scholarship to Sheffield College of Art. From Sheffield he was awarded a place at the prestigious Slade School, London University. There he was taught Painting by Sir William Coldstream, Sculpture by Sir Henry Moore, and Art History by Professor Ernst Gombrich, the German Art Historian. He graduated in 1960: He later studied for his PhD at Wolverhampton in Holography. Following his Senior Lecturer position at Burton upon Trent College of Art, he was appointed Artist in Residence at Castle Howard, York. He had a website to promote his Landscape work: In 2011 he produced the Sculpture the Dotterel Shepherd, which is situated on a by-pass at Reighton on the A165 between Bridlington and Scarborough. It is placed on a Traffic Island on top of a hill surrounded by some magnificent skies, and is passed by thousands of people every day. It is this image which introduces him as a Sculptor, the website images show his versatility as an artist. Falck’s latest work ‘The Anchorman’ of Bridlington Harbour is now standing proudly overlooking Bridlington Harbour on the Harbour Commissioners’ roof in a high profile position. Commissions are sought for any Fine Art ventures, Lectures, or Tuition.
