Location: Bevin Court, Islington

Description: Cyril Mann (1911-1980) was a British painter and sculptor who added a new dimension to figurative art by exploring the dynamic effects of sunlight in a different way from his predecessors.

In an art career that spanned nearly half a century, the effects of light and shadow remained a life long fascination.

He completed many of his famous works here in this 1 bedroom council flat before moving to Walthamstow in 1965.

Mann also completed a number of sculptures, including a commission to carve a family crest for a manor house.
