Lot Essay

Glindoni was a London painter of historical and figure subjects, particularly costume pieces set in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. At first he worked in the theatre, helping his grandfather who was a scene-painter. He also worked for various photographers, including Blanchards, colouring prints and painting on porcelain. He studied at the Working Mens' College and the Castle Street School of Art. He settled at Chadwell Heath, near Dagenham and his diary and papers are preserved in Dagenham Public Library.
