Alan Halliday (born 1952) is an internationally established British artist (see "The Dictionary of British Artists Since 1945"). His style is boldly calligraphic, with gouache and watercolour being built on a structure of fluid, spontaneous strokes. He has been a successful professional artist for over 40 years, holding more than one hundred exhibitions in the USA, Europe, India and the Middle East. His paintings are in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Oxford University colleges and the Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington, USA. Trained at the Courtauld Institute of Art (1970-74), in 1982 Halliday was awarded a doctorate of art by Oxford University. His first mentor was John Piper, the distinguished British Neo-Romantic painter. Halliday now lives in France by the Loire. In 2011 he was made Un Invité des Amis de Marcel Proust.
