Painter and teacher, born in Staffordshire, of idyllic landscapes depicted with much atmosphere and in minute detail. He studied at Beckenham School of Art, 1959–63 then Royal Academy Schools, 1963–6, a French Government Scholarship in 1964 enabling him to work in Paris. In 1966 Inshaw organised Young Contemporaries show, the year he began teaching at West of England College of Art, in Bristol, a position he held until 1975, when he joined Trinity College, Cambridge. Inshaw had first one-man show at Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol, where he had moved, in 1969, with another at Dartington Hall, in Devon. Three years later with Graham and Ann Arnold he formed the Broad Heath Brotherhood, and this trio with four others went on to create The Brotherhood of Ruralists in 1975.
