Douglas Pittuck was born in London in 1911 and educated at Wallingford Grammar School and the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art where his tutors included Barnett Freedman, Eric Ravilious, Allan Gwynne-Jones and Albert Rutherston. His studies were interrupted by conscription in 1940 when he joined the Oxford and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry. In 1948 Douglas was appointed Art Master at Barnard Castle School, a post which he occupied for twenty-five years, influencing a generation of artists. He exhibited widely including one-man shows at the Bowes Museum and Castle Gallery, Barnard Castle. He painted up until his death at the grand age of 90.
