Two local councillors are calling for late local artist Robert Overy to be recognised as part of next year’s City of Culture celebrations. Specialising in watercolour paintings and sketches, the much-loved artist developed a distinctive and instantly recognisable style, familiar to most Coventrians.
He was renowned for creating numerous black and white drawings of Coventry’s historic buildings that had survived the blitz. Most notably he illustrated a guide to Saint Mary’s Guildhall which is still on sale there today.
