Clive Madgwick was a British painter best known for realistic English pastoral scenes that depicted trout fisherman, farmers at work in the field, and sleepy harbour towns.
Born in 1934 in Surrey, he studied dental medicine at Guy’s Hospital and pursued painting as a hobby until middle age when he made it his sole occupation.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Madgwick travelled to Italy where he painted Venetian and Florentine landscapes and architecture.
He was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists and frequently exhibited in his native Britain until his death in 2005 in Suffolk, United Kingdom.
Madgwick’s oil paintings are in the collection of Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.
