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.
