Born in 1939, Anthony Green is an English contemporary realist painter and printmaker who lives and works in Cambridgeshire. He is best known for his paintings of his own middle-class domestic life, and his works sometimes use compound perspectives and polygonal forms, particularly with large, irregularly shaped canvasses.

Educated at Highgate School, London, where he was taught by Kyffin Williams, and the Slade School of Art, where he first met life-long friend and fellow RA Ben Levene, Anthony moved to Paris and Chateauroux in 1960 on a scholarship from the French government. He returned to England in 1961 and taught at the Slade from 1964 until 1967 when he received a Harkness Fellowship and spent two years living in Leonia, New Jersey and Altadena, California.

Anthony was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Academy in 1971, was elected a full Member in 1977, and won the Royal Academy Summer Exhibit of the Year in 1977. He has had over 100 one-man shows worldwide including London, Tokyo, New York, Rotterdam, Chicago, Berlin, Hamburg, Brussels and Sydney, and his work features in public collections across the globe.
