David Ghilchik (1892-1972)

Painter and draughtsman, born in Romania.
He studied at Manchester School of Art, 1907-15, where his wife Josephine was a fellow-student of Adolphe Valette, then he attended the Slade School of Fine Art under Henry Tonks and Ambrose McEvoy. 

He exhibited widely, including RA, ROI, NEAC, RP and Walker Club and contributed to Punch between the wars and Daily Sketch.
Ghilchik's oil paintings can be similar in style to those of Christopher Wood, landscapes having a breezy freshness. He was featured in Manchester City Art Gallery's 1976 exhibition of Valette.
Lived in London, dying in Poplar.
