Rufus De Pinto - Artist and Eccentric 1965

6 mins United Kingdom

London-born artist Rufus de Pinto settled in Stradbroke in Suffolk with wife Olive in the mid-1950s. Together, they opened an art gallery at Doggetts on Queen Street where they also held weekend and summer residential art courses. Anglia TV’s Mike Robson visits Doggetts and speaks with De Pinto as they sit in the Suffolk sunshine on the steps of his gypsy caravan, then taking a look around the artists home and gardens and seeing many of his oil paintings.

The East Anglian Film Archive, the first and largest Regional Film Archive in England, was established in 1976. Since 1984, EAFA has been owned and operated by the University of East Anglia, Norwich (UEA), to support research and work to preserve our moving image heritage. More than 250 hours are freely available online as examples of the wide range of film which attracts interest the world over.
