Russell Sidney Reeve (1895-1970) was a talented artist and etcher who was very active in the mid-century period. He began life as an architect then attended the Slade School of Art where he further developed his skills in drawing. Reeve lived in London but had strong connections with the countryside, especially with Suffolk. Reeve exhibited widely, including at the Royal Academy: the Tate Gallery, the V & A, the Guildhall Art Gallery and the Government Art Collection all acquired his work.
