Donald McIntyre was born in Leeds in 1923 of Scottish parents and spent his early life in the west of Scotland. He was influenced by the teaching of James Wright RSW and McIntyre developed a palette firmly based in the Scottish Colourist tradition.
Donald McIntyre first trained as a dentist; fortunately, however, the dental hospital was opposite Glasgow School of Art and he was able to attend evening classes there. He practised as a dentist, served in the army and taught in schools until the age of forty. Then, encouraged by the Howard Roberts Gallery in Cardiff, he left dentistry to become a full time painter.
Donald McIntyre lived in North Wales for some 45 years, travelling back to Scotland most summers painting on Iona. Smaller works he often completed in situ but his sketches, which captured the rapidly changing light and mood, were taken back to his studio for reference. Donald McIntyre was inspired by the landscapes of his childhood and retained a lifelong love of the coastline of the British Isles.
Donald McIntyre has exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Scottish Academy, Royal Society of Marine Artists, the Fosse Gallery and in the Galleries Racines, Brussels; he was a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art.
Donald McIntyre’s work is in the permanent collections of H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh, Robert Fleming Holdings plc, The Williamson Art Gallery (Birkenhead), Newport Art Gallery, Merthyr Tydfil Art Gallery, The Welsh Arts Council, The National Library of Wales, The Welsh Contemporary Art Society, Anglesey and Gwynedd Education Authorities, University of Wales, Department of the Environment, British Steel, USA Embassy (London) and London University.
