My friend John Wright, who has died aged 88, was an artist and lecturer, full of passion and curiosity.
In the 1960s and 70s, John showed his work at the John Moores exhibition, the Royal Academy summer exhibition, and galleries in London, Liverpool and Bradford. In the 20-year period following his retirement, he was able to devote himself more fully to painting, producing a significant body of work that testifies to the depth of his talent.
