Dennis Duckworth

I believe Dennis Duckworth, who contributed to Swift Annual 6 (1959), is Minister and artist the Reverend Dennis Duckworth. Duckworth, born in Accrington, Lancashire, on 14 September 1911, grew up in the North of England; he spent over fifty years in London as a minister with the New Church (Swedenborgian) but, towards the end of his life, returned to Lancashire where he died on 21 December 2003, aged 92, after a short illness.

Duckworth was a recognised artist in a largely modernist cubist style. You can find out more about Duckworth's artwork at the website he maintained. Some of his paintings were turned into greetings cards. An exhibition of his most recent artwork is currently running at the Haworth Art Gallery in Accrington.
