A painter and poet, he studied at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts, 1948-52, under Keigh Vaughan and John Minton who greatly influenced his work. Durrant moved from figuration to abstraction in the early fifties. He said that any titles on his pictures were “meant to be interpreted as poetry, to engender a state of mind rather than describe exactly what the particular picture is”. Durrant was greatly influenced by European abstractionists and by English poetry, such as Gerard Hopkins, Thomas Hardy and Dylon Thomas. Durrant showed with Free Painters and Sculptors, and with NEAC both of which he was a member. In 1960 his poetry ‘A Rag Book of Love’was published. After a solo show at Guildhall, Lavenham, in 1948, he showed at the Royal Academy from 1950. Later exhibitions including Loggia Gallery, Gallery of British Art in Lausanne and Belgrave Gallery, 1991. Many public collections hold his work, including Imperial War Museum, Bradford City Art Gallery and Balliol College, Oxford. Lived Cambridge.‘A Girl Wearing Sandles’ is a very important early work by Durrant, executed whilst at Camberwell, and clearly showing the influence of Picasso.
