Born in Macclesfield in 1901, Charles Tunnicliffe studied at Macclesfield School of Art before going on to win a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, London. Heavily influenced by his childhood in rural Cheshire, his work often depicted birds and other wildlife in their natural habitats.
Tunnicliffe, who spent most of his working life on the Isle of Anglesey, was an internationally renowned artist and illustrated over 80 books in his lifetime. He was elected a Royal Academician in 1954 and was awarded an OBE in 1978. A solo show of 300 of his bird paintings was staged at the Royal Academy in 1974.
