Rendle Wood

Rendle Wood (1894-1987)

Robert Sydney Rendle Wood was a Plymouth born painter of landscapes and coastal scenes in oil, tempera and water-colour. He studied at Plymouth School of Art and later at Edinburgh College of Art under David Foggie. It is probable that he became acquainted with the work of the Scottish Colourists during his time in Scotland, and later in his working life he demonstrated a fine sense of colour in his own pictures.

He exhibited at the Royal West of England Academy, Royal Hibernian Academy, Royal Society of Scottish Painters in Watercolours, Glasgow Institute, Society of Scottish Artists, and with the National Society of Painters and Gravers (NS) of which group he was a full member.

He lived in Northern Ireland for some years and was a member of the Ulster Art Society in the late 1920s, during which time he became secretary. Rendle Wood was also honorary secretary and a member of Ulster Academy of Arts.

After returning to the West Country he became a member of the St Ives Society of Artists and of the Plymouth Society of Artists. He lived at Plymstock in South Devon and later at St. Austell in Cornwall.
