Landscape painter, Portrait painter, Water color painter

Adrian Maurice Daintrey, RWA (1902–1988) was a British portrait and landscape painter.

Adrian Daintrey was born in Balham, London on 23 June 1902,[1] the youngest of three children of Ernest Daintrey, a solicitor[2] and his wife Lucy Mary (née Blagdon).[3] He was educated at Charterhouse School, where he developed his artistic skills,[3] at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1920 to 1924,[4] and at the École du Louvre and L'Académie de la Grande Chaumière, Paris. He gathered a wide circle of friends including the artists Augustus John, Nina Hamnett and Rex Whistler.

He shared his first exhibition with Paul Nash at Dorothy Warren's Gallery in 1928. During the Second World War, he served widely abroad. After the war he held shows at his studio to promote his work. He worked for Punch from 1953 to 1961 as the art critic. He illustrated Elizabeth David's Summer Cooking and several of her other titles, sometimes working with John Minton. From the late 1960s he taught part-time at the City and Guilds of London Art School. His illustrated memoir I Must Say offers a vivid portrayal of London life among artistic and bohemian circles in the 1920s and 30s.[5]

He died at the Charterhouse almshouse where he had lived as a Brother from 1984 until his death.[6]

(1902-1988) CHARTWELL signed and titled l.l., signed in pencil l.r. watercolour and pen 33.5 x 39cm / 13.0 x 15.3in Adrian Maurice Daintrey, was born in Tooting and brought up in Wimbledon. He went from Charterhouse to the Slade School of Art. Here he chafed somewhat under Henry Tonks, the then drawing master. Encouraged by Wilson Steer to study the Old Masters, he began to visit the National Gallery to paint, making friends with Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant on these visits. He befriended Augustus John, who he had bumped into on the street by chance, and enquired if he might see his studio. He became friends with the influential figure, and soon was a regular drinking companion of his at the Cafe Royal. Sir John Betjeman was to place Daintrey in "the great tradition of London from Thackeray and Sir John Leech to Max Beerbohm and Osbert Lancaster".

(1902-1988) CHARTWELL signed and titled l.l., signed in pencil l.r. watercolour and pen 33.5 x 39cm / 13.0 x 15.3in Adrian Maurice Daintrey, was born in Tooting and brought up in Wimbledon. He went from Charterhouse to the Slade School of Art. Here he chafed somewhat under Henry Tonks, then drawing master. Encouraged by Wilson Steer to study the Old Masters, he began to visit the National Gallery to paint, making friends with Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant on these visits. He befriended Augustus John, who he had bumped into and enquired if he might see his studio. He became friends with the Slade legend, and soon was a regular drinking companion of his at the Cafe Royal. His wartime career was varied, and took him from England to Iran, and Italy to Egypt. In each place he went, he took the opportunity to paint where he could, eventually being drafted into the Camouflage Corps. Finding himself out of favour with gallerists after the war, he took to exhibiting in his Chelsea flat. Here, given his widespread popularity with fellow artists and with critics, he found success. During this time he shared a flat with Donald Maclean - in his memoirs he stated that he merely found the spy's politics odd - and came to be close friends with Matthew Bell. Daintrey's memoirs, I Must Say (1963) are a remarkable record of the more personal side of some of Britain's most renowned artists, with whom he had spent many an evening dining or drinking. Sir John Betjeman was to place Daintrey in "the great tradition of London from Thackeray and Sir John Leech to Max Beerbohm and Osbert Lancaster".
