David Tindle on John Minton

In 1952 British artist David Tindle sat for a portrait by John Minton. He describes how Minton created the portrait, which features in a major exhibition at Pallant House Gallery. The exhibition 'John Minton: A Centenary' runs at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, from 1 July - 1 October 2017, and is co-curated by Simon Martin with Frances Spalding, art historian and Minton's biographer. This exhibition marks the centenary of the birth of Minton, a bohemian figure in London during the 1940s and 50s who counted Michael Ayrton, Lucian Freud and Keith Vaughan amongst his friends. The exhibition explores the artist’s achievements far beyond his reputation as a leading post-war illustrator and influential tutor.
