David Poole is an artist who is well known for his portraits, having undertaken portrait commissions for many members of the Royal Family including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and The Queen Mother. His landscapes, here mostly drawings made in pastel, are rarely seen, but much admired by the few who have been lucky enough to see them in his home. Amazingly, this is one of the very rare occasions this aspect of his work has been displayed in a gallery setting.
In 1968 David was elected to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, which he was made President of in 1983 until 1991. His work is held in Private collections, including those of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and also in Australia, South Africa, Bermuda, France, Germany, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia and USA.
