Biography from VALLEJO GALLERY, LLC, Marine Art Specialists:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Carrying on the storied tradition of more than 300 years of British sea painters, John Bentham-Dinsdale is an exacting scholar of the famous ships of the past. His passion finds its focus in mainly oil paintings of the great clippers and sailing warships of the 19th century.

Bentham-Dinsdale studied architecture and design at Leeds University, and went on to serve as the head of design for a British television company in Tyne. He also was a commissioned officer and pilot in the royal air force during World War II. It is written that he has always painted, but took to his brushes as his sole occupation in 1965. A founding member of the British Sea Painters Group in 1970, he exhibited his first one-man show in London in 1974. His work has since been exhibited on nearly every continent of the world, including salons and galleries in London, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Vancouver, Tokyo and Sydney.

Working from preliminary sketches and extensive research of his subjects, Bentham-Dinsdale bring forth on canvas the emotional strength of his sailing ships in their full glory, with dynamic atmospheres and a oceans full of color. Many of his canvases are quite large, yet the sharp details and precise scale of his architectural draftsmanship are clearly present in his naval and commercial subjects.
