Thomas Nicholson Tyndale was a painter of country cottages, garden scenes, and landscapes who was born near Uckfield, Sussex. He was the cousin of Walter Frederick Roofe Tyndale (1855-1943) the well known painter and illustrator. Although he spent his early years in Sussex at some point he moved to the Middlesex area and is listed as living there in 1891. In 1894, he married Mabel Josephine Mumford and from 1902-1911 started exhibiting from 1902-1911 from an address in Acton. He regularly exhibited at the Dudley Gallery Art Society at the Egyptian Hall in Piccadilly as well as at the Royal West of England Academy. He also exhibited at other galleries in the provinces. Tyndale worked mainly in watercolours with his favoured subjects being of cottages and rural landscapes of England usually with the inclusion of figures as in this lovely example; however he also travelled to Europe painting scenes in Bruges and Venice. He produced 20 watercolour illustrations for a book entitled "Worcestershire", published in 1909 by A & C Black. Later in his life Tyndale moved to Worthing where he died on 15 December 1936 at the age of 78.
