Adrian Dingle Painting


This oil painting is representative of Dingle's impressionistic style and titled "At the Base of a Millrace". It is very adventurous in that it attempts to create the illusion of stone and water in an entirely novel way. Size: Without frame: 11.75" high x 15.75" wide. With frame: 16.6" high x 20.5" wide. Biography: John Adrian Darley Dingle was born in Barmouth, North Wales. He came to Canada with his parents in 1914 and settled in Oakville, Ontario. Adrian left an insurance job to study art and, in 1931, took instruction from J.W. Beatty at the summer school of the Ontario College of Art. He later went to England where he worked as an illustrator, studying art in his free time under James Bateman and John Mansbridge. He exhibited portraits with the London Portrait Society. On his return to Canada, Adrian Dingle became a regular exhibitor at the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA) annuals and with other groups. Much of his work was sold through the T. Eaton Company’s Fine Art Gallery. He continued to work as an illustrator, and also taught art in Kitchener and Etobicoke. Much of Adrian Dingle’s painting was done in oils, and later acrylic, and he was known as a prolific painter. During the summers, Adrian Dingle travelled to the East coast where he painted Cape Breton Island and other areas. During the win­ter, the painter seldom went beyond a 50-mile radius of Toronto. Adrian also painted in Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, the British Isles and Massachusetts. Adrian Dingle became an OSA member in 1961 and served as president from 1967-1970. He became a Royal Canadian Academy member in 1968. Nelvana of the Northern Lights Adrian Dingle is also known as the creator and artist behind the Second World War comic book, Nelvana of the Northern Lights, which featured a female superhero fighting for justice. Nelvana was one of the world’s first female superheroes. Adrian's work is represented in Ontario museums, as well as corporate and private collections.
