Monday hero: Ruskin Spear

Ruskin Spear (1911-1990) was a British painter.

Due to childhood polio, he was in a wheelchair. This effected his choice of subject.

Most of his work is about family life and the people in his nabourhood.

I love the slightly anecdotic quality of his work: the set table, the people in the pub, the cat.

And I like the unaccustomed, posed look of his portraits.
