Muralist, artist in oil, gouache and watercolour, teacher, illustrator and lithographer of landscapes and figure subjects with a strong interest in early history. Sorrell’s illustrations to Henry Loyn’s Norman Britain, 1966, and Medieval Britain, 1977, are exemplary in blending a clear, informative text with superb artistic reconstruction. Born in London, Sorrell studied at Southend School of Art.
