Born in London in 1932, Uglow trained at Camberwell School of Art between 1948 and 1950, before receiving a scholarship to the Slade School of Art, where he studied under William Coldstream and was greatly influenced by the painters of the Euston Road School…
He is particularly noted for his female nude and still life subjects of which he is a meticulous painter.
Uglow was “one of Britain’s 15 most significant artists” for Lord Snowdon’s group portraits in Vogue on the occasion of the Tate Modern opening. Misleadingly described as a figurative or realist painter, his contribution was actually as radical and experimental as any celebrated postwar artist. The ideas he pursued had nothing to do with language or the camera. Rather, his aim was “a structured painting full of controlled, and therefore potent, emotion”…
