TWO paintings by one of Huddersfield's finest artists are expected to fetch a total of £6,800 at auction.
The works by David Tindle go under the hammer at Sotheby's in London on February 16.
Mr Tindle, now 72 and living in Italy, is believed to be Huddersfield's only Royal Academician.
He was born in the town in 1932 as David Cook. But when his parents' marriage ended in divorce he assumed the surname Tindle and went to live in Coventry, where he was educated.
One of his paintings up for sale at Sotheby's is called Rowing Boats at Oxford (left) and is dated 1959. The other - Beach, Seaford (right) - was painted in 1961 and used to be owned by Lady Rothschild.
An exhibition of Mr Tindle's work is currently on at the Redfern Gallery, London. He was elected a Royal Academician in 1979 and was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Art in 1981.
