This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Born in Nottingham, England in 1915, Patrick James McArdle, called Pat, spent his formative years studying with French painter Amadee Ozenfant.  His work was considered “…tres originale et remarquablement fraiche de couleur,” by France Amerique

Although born in England, McArdle was actually Irish and moved to New York City with his family when they emigrated, fleeing the war in Northern Ireland in 1924.

He received his formal education at the Art Student’s League in New York City where he was a pupil of Hans Hoffmann.  He spent summers studying with marine painter Jay Hall Connaway.  Often compared to Matisse, McArdle’s figures exhibit a similar feeling of movement and presence, or as one critic for Art News put it, they are …”whimsical comments on equilibrium…and human manners.”  He exhibited exclusively in New York City and his paintings are represented in the private collections of collectors from the mid twentieth century such as Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca, Joel Friedman and Brahm Miranda.

Patrick McArdle passed away on June 1, 1997, in Ellsworth, Maine.
