George Rushton was born in Birmingham and studied there at the City Art School. From 1906-1929 he was the head of the Ipswich School of Art which is considered to be its hey-day producing many fine artists, most notably, Leonard Russell Squirrell (1893-1979).  After retirement, he moved to Didcot, Berkshire but the pull of East Anglia brought him back to Suffolk and he spent his final years in Belstead, near Ipswich. 

 

He was a member of the  Ipswich Art Club, the R.I,  R.B.A. and R.B.S.A
