Arbuthnot was born in Surrey, his mother being a motivated amateur artist. He moved to the St Ives area in 1940, having been a keen photographer in earlier years (see Buckman), and remained locally for a decade. Known now mainly as a photographer, he was an accomplished painter of watercolors as well, especially landscapes.
Though he had studied under C A Brindley, J W Fergusson, W P Robinson elsewhere, in Cornwall, he became a pupil of Charles Walter SIMPSON and was elected to the Royal Institute of Watercolour Painters in 1942. Latterly he lived and worked at La Houle, Jersey.
Tony Copsey writes: Malcolm Arbuthnot (born Malcolm Lewin Stockdale Parsons, 1877, Cobham, Surrey- died 1967) was a pictorialist photographer and artist.
In 1907, he joined the Brotherhood of the Linked Ring, an organisation founded in 1892 by Alfred Maskell and others dissatisfied with the ethos of the Royal Photographic Society exhibitions, with the aim to promote naturalistic and aesthetic photography as an independent art. From 1914, Arbuthnot ran a portrait studio in London's New Bond Street, in the early 20th century photographing many celebrities including the actress Lillah McCarthy, the pianist Harriet Cohen and the poet Robert Nichols. His
studio, along with many of his works, was destroyed in a fire. He was a friend of George Bernard Shaw. Also in 1914, he was one of the signatories - the only photographer - to the manifesto of the Vorticism movement published in the first issue of the literary magazine BLAST. He combined his interests in photography and art by using gum and oil pigment processes, after joining the Linked Ring making increasingly controversial anti-naturalistic gum prints. After World War I, he gave up photography in favour of painting, working in oils, watercolours and gouaches. [See Wikipedia for notes on this information].
He studied design and the history of architecture at the Royal West of England College of Art in Bristol, then for five years (1935-40) worked in the Art Department of Ealing Studios [See Buckman]. Armfield moved to Cornwall in 1942, taking up painting as a full time professional career in 1945.
A Quaker pacifist, he turned to Symbolism during the war years. His cousin was Maxfield Armfield, the painter and writer, and from him he developed the tempera technique, producing a manual on the subject in due course. For 20 years he worked in a studio in Looe, South Cornwall, opening a Gallery in 1965. Later he moved to Plymouth, Devon.
