DAVID GLUCK PHOTO GALLERY
GALLERY THREE

From the early twentieth century until a compulsory purchase order forced its closure in the 1960s, David Gluck and his family operated a picture framing business on Front Street, Pontefract. David Gluck was the proprietor of the business and his son, also called David and born in Pontefract in 1939, studied at Leeds College of Art and Wakefield School of Art before moving to the Royal College of Art in London and then on to begin a teaching career at the Central School of Art and Design in 1974. David Jnr. became an accomplished artist renowned throughout the art world and his work has been exhibited throughout Europe with examples currently held in many public and private collections. His work has also featured in many publications and won several major artistic awards. Sadly, David died in early 2007.

The selection of photographs featured here were taken by David Gluck Senior, a keen and very competent photographer during the 1930s. His photographic talent and vision equals that of many of his contemporaries whose works have received much acclaim and publicity.  It is doubtful whether any of these images have ever been on public view before.

Further information about each of these images will be added shortly.
