David Tindle


Born in Huddersfield, David Tindle has made his name for painting painstaking and delicate egg tempera scenes of haunting and subtly lit interiors, portraits and still life studies. He graduated from Coventry School of Art in 1947 and held his first solo show at the Piccadilly Gallery in 1954. He came to the attention of John Minton who purchased a portrait by him and introduced him to Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. He taught for a time at the Royal College of Art and was Ruskin Master of Drawing at Oxford University. Works by him are in many public collections.
