Miguel Mackinlay

August - November 2018

The artist Miguel Mackinlay was born in Spain in 1895. He had his early art education in Western Australia and later moved to Chelsea, London where he mixed with a lively group of artists, and began illustrating magazines and attended St Martin’s School of Art.

During the early years of the First World War Miguel continued with his art studies. By 1917 he was called up to the 3rd Battalion of the Suffolk Regiment and throughout the First World War he sketched vivid images of life on the Western Front.

His annotated sketches were drawn in the waiting time between the offensives or in the recovery weeks where an attack was not expected. While enduring the monotony of the trenches Miguel made vivid pen and wash drawings. This Spotlight display will include a selection of these war drawings. One of Mackinlay’s paintings, The Young Reader, 1945, is included in our fine art collection.
