Draughtsman, printmaker, black-and-white artist and painter. Born in London, elder son of the artist William Strang, he first studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, 1902–6, with Henry Tonks and Fred Brown, then at the Académie Julian, Paris, with Jean-Paul Laurens, 1906–8. Strang was a fine etcher and draughtsman in the Slade tradition, but with his own slightly austere style. His drawn landscapes often feature continental, especially southern European, locations. Exhibited RA, RE, NEAC, Fine Art Society, Goupil and Leicester Galleries, with a large and consistent output. Imperial War Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, British Museum, many provincial and overseas galleries hold his work. Wrote The Student’s Book of Etching, 1938. His work appeared in many publications including Fine Prints of the Year and Print Collectors’ Quarterly.
