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.
