At this time he settled in Great Bardfield, Essex, a village that was to be home to an artistic community that included his great friend Edward Bawden as well as John Nash, Kenneth Rountree, Michael Rothenstein, Cedric Morris and others. At Great Bardfield he took pleasure in painting the Essex countryside and above all the garden and grounds he was developing at his home, Place House. The present work shows the garden at Place House and was exhibited in London in 1950 at the Art Council’s major exhibition of Contemporary British Landscape Artists alongside other major contemporary landscape paintings by Sutherland, Nicholson, Nash and others.
Aldridge served in the army during World War II, 1941-45. In 1949 he was invited by William Coldstream to become a painting tutor at the Slade where he remained until 1970. An excellent portrait painter, his portrait of his close friend Robert Graves is in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery. The Tate Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum and many other public collections hold examples of his work.
