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.
