Rudolph Ihlee (1883 - 1968)


Rudolph Ihlee (b. London 183 - d. 1968) studied at the Slade School of Fine Arts in 1906-10 and won there a number of prizes. Eighth son of the founder of the Jaegar cloth firm, Ihlee was one of the star pupils at the Slade School of Art, and was part of the trendy Coster Gang, including Mark Gertler, Christopher Nevinson, Stanley Spencer, John S. Currie, Maxwell Gordon Lightfoot, Edward Wadsworth, Adrian Allinson who so-called because they wore black jerseys, red neck scarves and black berets - like the costermongers who sold fruit and vegetables from carts in the street.

Ihlee had two solo exhibitions at the Carfax Gallery in 1914 and became a member of New English Art Club in 1919. In 1921 Ihlee exhibited at the Leicester Galleries with a great success and in 1926 he had solo show at Chenil Galleries. He settled in Collioure, in the south of France and married Isabelle, a French lady. In 1978 Graves Art Gallery in Sheffield and Belgrave Gallery held retrospective shows. Victoria & Albert Museum, Manchester City Art Gallery and Cecil Higgins Art Gallery hold examples of his work.
