Although notorious for his drunken hedonism in Soho in the 1940s and early 1950s, Minton was also prone to inner melancholy. This poignant half-length portrait of the artist David Tindle as a youth seems to be imbued with a sense of this sombre introspection. He once claimed, "There is no more revealing personality than the visual artist, for a man will paint only of himself and of the things he knows, loves, hates, desires."
