20th Century British Art

Myles Tonks (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.
