Walter Tyndale RBC RI (1855-1943)


Walter Frederick Roope Tyndale, RBC RI (1855-1943)

Walter Tyndale was one of the most popular and influential topographical watercolourists working at the turn of the century. He was also one of the first to benefit from the printing revolution of 1901 when his publishers, A & C Black, pioneered the use of three colour half-tone plates. The ensuing publishing boom led to a wealth of commissions for Tyndale for illustrated travel books, which took him from the Wessex countryside to Europe and the Far East.

Walter Tyndale was born at the Chateau Schapsdael, near Bruges, on 10 August 1855, to John Nash Tyndale (1814-1868), a Barrister-at-Law in the Middle Temple, and Charlotte Flora Hulme (born 1816). He was educated in Bruges and, at the age of 16, attended drawing classes at the city’s academy. Following the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War, the Tyndale family retreated to England and in 1871 settled in Bath.
