Dallas Simpson

Audrey Dallas-Simpson (1925-1984) was one of the most famous and successful commercial artists of the 1960s. Her success was achieved through the sales of millions of prints of her work.

Dallas Simpson was originally from London. During the 1960s, she moved with her husband to a caravan in Lancing, West Sussex. Her paintings usually featured urchin children with large, sad eyes. Her images are instantly recognizable and remembered affectionately as an essential part of the Sixties kitsch aesthetic.
