Albert Irvin, the painter, who has died aged 92, started out in the 1950s as a figurative artist of the kitchen sink school, but after discovering Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko at a famous Tate exhibition in 1956 he reinvented himself as an exponent of a dazzlingly vigorous abstract expressionism, becoming one of Britain’s most respected abstract artists.
