I’m a Canadian artist who met Henry Inlander in 1969 at the University of Calgary, where he was a visiting artist. I did a painting course with him and he invited me to visit him in London, whenever I traveled to Europe. I lived in London from 1970-71 and would meet with Henry and he would critique my work. At that time he was the head painting instructor at the Camberwell school of Art. He was truly a wonderful person and I was so saddened when I heard of his passing in 1983. I think he is an outstanding artist!!!!!

I am the nephew of Henry Inlander. I am presently working on a novel about his life and how his creative work connects to the Holocaust and its impact on him and on my family.

I went to football with Henry Inlander in the late 50's or early 60's, when I was still a teenager. I had no idea he was a distinguished artist, but his father, an Austrian refugee lived nearby in modest circumstances in Greencroft Gardens, near Finchley Road Station and he was a friend of my father's who was a refugee from Germany. His father, I understood, was a night club comedian in pre war Austria and was always telling us jokes. He followed Charlton Athletic and we used to go to football matches at Charlton, myself, Henry, my father and his father. Henry Inlander must have been in his early/mid thirties when I met him. He was a nice , modest man always engaged me in conversation and I subsequently heard about his problems from my Dad who was keen on Art . It was an auction catalogue of his paintings which I recently discovered amongst my late fathers' files, that prompted me to search for more information.
