Charles Cundall, RA RWS RP NEAC NS SMA (1890-1971)

Charles Cundall was born in Stretford, Lancashire on 6 September 1890. His first artistic training came as an apprentice at Pilkington’s Pottery, designing pottery and stained glass under the Scottish designer Gordon Forsyth. In 1912, he studied at Manchester School of Art, before being awarded a scholarship to the Royal College of Art. However, his studies were interrupted in 1914 by the outbreak of the First World War. Serving in the Royal Fusiliers, Cundall was wounded in the right arm, forcing him to learn to paint with his left hand before returning to the RCA in 1918.
