ART REVISTED : Joseph Henry Lynch

Joseph Henry Lynch (28 October 1911 – 16 January 1989) was a British artist, better known under his signature J.H. Lynchis almost still entirely unknown. His mass reproduced paintings of sultry women, especially Tina (1964), Nymph, Autumn Leaves and Woodland Goddess made him one one of the mysterious 60's art protagonists of Mass Market Art his time and are some of his best known works, some of which are shown in the movie A Clockwork Orange by Stanley Kubrick and more recently some of his work adorned the Stella McCartney A/W18 Collection. Yet, there remains almost no information whatsoever about this artist, except for his paintings. The rumours still to this day run rampant as to his true identity. From a New Zealand nun, from Belgium bookstores to US Manufacturing companies to a man named Piet Schreuders from the Netherlands who seemed to have written magazine articles and even a booklet on Mr Lynch, the mysterious and lives on but so to does the art.
