Peter Biegel (1913-88)
Born in 1913, art came naturally to Peter Biegel. After an education at Downside he went into his fathers business in the City.
Five years on he decided to study art seriously and became a student at Lucy Kemp-Welch’s school at Bushey. After the war he spent two terms at Bournemouth school studying figure drawing, however a chance meeting with Lionel Edwards on a train journey was the most fortunate thing that could happen to him and he spent a year at Buckholt, West Tytherley, studying under him. He was Lionel Edwards’s only pupil.
Latterly, Biegel painted racing and hunting pictures, a number of which were reproduced as prints.
