Born in Sheffield, Michael Tyzack studied at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.  For 30 years he lived and worked in South Carolina, USA, becoming emeritus professor at Charleston School of the Arts.  He was one of the most distinguished British abstract painters to have settled in the United States in the last half-century. As a teacher he became a revered mentor for many young artists. Two works by this artist were purchased for the brand new University Art Collection in 1967 from the Demarco Gallery.
