Rochester, circa 1920
Framed (ref: 940)
Oil on board, 14 x 18 1/2 in. (35.8 x 47cm.)
Provenance: the artist’s daughter
Benefiting from the unrivalled teaching of his uncle, Henry Tonks, Myles Tonks excelled in painting on-the-spot landscape and coastal views, responding especially to the rugged scenery of the Scottish Highlands. According to his great-nephew, he often allowed himself the comfort of painting through the open window of his Rolls-Royce, his artist’s materials to hand.
