Myles Tonks

ARTIST

Tonks, Myles

1890 – 1960

Painter and draughtsman who was by profession a surgeon, born at
Darley, Warwickshire. Studied at Medway School of Art and with Henry
Tonks. Myles was the only relation with whom Henry cared to talk about
painting and the former Slade Professor left Myles his art books.
Exhibited RA, NEAC, RI, ROI, RHA, PS and elsewhere. Percy V Bradshaw in
his book Water-colour: A Truly English Art illustrates Tonks’ Col de
Lauteret mountainscape in which the artist looked for “translucency,
an unworried paper-surface”, a good example of his work. Lived at
Watchet, Somerset.
