Jeremy Annear (born 1949) is an English painter from Exeter and is a late generation Modern British Artist. He is married and lives with his wife, the painter Judy Buxton, and his daughter on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. He describes himself as a European Modernist and has painted within that genre all his life. Early exposure to St Ives Abstraction (Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Peter Lanyon, Roger Hilton, Terry Frost etc.) had a profound influence on him in his early teens and an abiding love of 20th-century European Art in particular the work of Picasso, Braque, Poliakoff, Klee, and Miró have left their mark on him and his work. He has worked extensively in Germany and Australia and has absorbed influences in his work from both these cultures.
His painting Untitled Abstract in Blue and Grey (1994) in is the collection of the Royal Holloway College, University of London.
