Alan Maley
1931 - 1995

No other artist has captured the age of elegance like Alan Maley. His romantic images allow the viewer to step back to a simpler time of rustling satins and silks, carriage rides to the theater, and play at the shore. Born and raised in England, Alan came from an artistic and talented family and always wanted to be an artist. After attending Reigate Art College, he had to choose to attend the prestigious Royal Academy School in London or enter the movie industry as an apprentice artist. He chose the glittering world of the movies, serving a long and arduous apprenticeship for five years. He trained as a scenic artist but this career was abruptly cut short when he contracted polio. Alan spent a year convalescing and learning to walk again. This time was also a crucial turning point in his life as he realized that he would no longer be able to paint the physically demanding large canvas backdrops. He was given the opportunity to become a continuity sketch artist and then entered the magical world of special effects as a matte artist. His talents were recognized by Walt Disney who brought Alan to America. He was honored by his peers with an Academy Award for his visual effects in the Disney movie Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Maley's artistry can also be seen in other movies, such as The Spay Who Loved Me, Dr. Strangelove, Beckett, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Even while busily involved in the movie industry, Alan Maley found time to devote to his own paintings. His love of the 19th century and his extensive research into the period are evident in his work. Stimulating activities and everyday events are beautifully interwoven with historic locales to create intriguing vignettes of people and places in a more gracious era. His paintings, limited editions prints, and canvases are eagerly sought by collectors throughout the world. The world lost a talented artist and an extraordinary man when Alan Maley suddenly passed away at the age of 64 in 1995. His genteel and loving personality traits will live on, however, in the beauty and charm of his paintings for years to come.
