Rowland Suddaby (1912–1972) was a landscape painter. He was born in Yorkshire and trained at the Sheffield College of Art and at the RCA. His first job was working for a Wardour Street Film Studio, ornamenting the titles of black and white films. A member of the Seven and Five Society, he had the first of several one man exhibitions at the Redfern Gallery in 1934, and later at the Leger Gallery. He moved to Suffolk in 1939 and helped to save Thomas Gainsborough's house in Sudbury. He established a living arts centre there where he was curator for the last four years of his life.
