DAVID LAVINGTON

INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED FINE ARTIST

David Lavington, an American artist who is best known for his limited edition silkscreen prints and sculpture constructions, died on October 4th, 1995 at his home in Amsterdam, Holland after a long illness. He was 44.

Mr. Lavington's work has been displayed in one-man museum shows in such venues as the Vincent Van Gogh and Stedelijk museums in Amsterdam: the Denver Art Museum: as well as galleries in Amsterdam, New York, Paris and London. Two of his widely acclaimed serigraph jungle prints were selected by UNICEF for its greeting cards in 1979 and 1985.

Born in Denver, Mr. Lavington was raised in Southern California. As a teenager, he received a Certificat Assiduite' from the University of Strasbourg in Strasbourg, France. He was named one of the outstanding young artists in America by Hallmark, which awarded him a scholarship for undergraduate studies at the Pratt Institute in New York City. While at Pratt, Mr. Lavington studied sculpture under J. Lipschitz in Pietra Santa, Italy. As a high school senior he was given the prestigious Boettcher Award at the Denver Art Museum. He graduated from the Santa Barbara Art Institute with a M.F.A. degree with honors.

Mr. Lavington had his first one-man museum show at the Vincent Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam at the age of 25 and has had his work featured in 40 such shows during his career. His prints and sculpture constructions have been acquired by dozens of private and corporate collectors, including Xerox, Shell, Oil, Honeywell, Pfizer, The New York Times, and Harcourt General.

Fluent in several languages, Mr. Lavington traveled widely to do research for his art. His prints were inspired by flora he studied in the Amazon, Asia's Golden Triangle, Egypt, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Tahiti, among other destinations.

Mr. Lavington was descended from an old English family whose origins date back to a twelfth century knight, Sir William Lavington, and his ancestors included a Baronet, George Lavington, who was a Bishop of Exeter in the eighteenth century.
