Roy Beddington (1910-1995) was a painter and writer, born in London. Educated at Rugby and Oxford and destined for an academic adulthood, he decided that painting was the only career for him. He studied at the Slade in London briefly in 1928 and again later in 1934 under Randolphe Schwabe and he also had private tuition from Bernard Adams. Since early childhood he was always a passionate angler and as a result is remembered as a painter of fishing scenes.
He has often exhibited in London galleries and both wrote and illustrated several books on the subject. A fervent countryman, he illustrated books and wrote for Country Life and designed posters for Shell. Beddington showed his work at the RA, RCamA, RWS, Whitechapel Art Gallery, Fine Art Society, NEAC, Ackermann Gallery and Walker's Gallery, London. His daughter Sarah Beddington was also a painter.
