Tony Hart

Thursday, 15th October 1925 - Sunday, 18th January 2009
Maidstone
England


British TV presenter who charmed generations of children with his artsy antics. Hart's 50-year TV career took in everything from lightning-fast magic marker sketches to a giant paint-spattered Jackson Pollocklike composition and an even larger elephant whitewashed onto an airfield. One of his shows, Hartbeat, attracted as many as 5.4 million viewers. Hart received 6,000-8,000 children's drawings and paintings in the mail every week. His health had been in decline after two strokes several years ago. He died in London, England on January 18, 2009.
