Review Entries for Day Monday, June 24, 2013

Stanhope Alexander Forbes (1857-1947) was the “Father” of the Newlyn School movement.  Born in Dublin, he studied in Paris and at the RA Schools. Moved to Newlyn with his wife to be Elizabeth Adela Armstrong, a great painter in her own right, in 1884. Many artists followed; Harold Harvey; Henry Scott Tuke; Frank Bramley ; Fred Hall; Charles Walter Simpson and many others. The list of talent and recognised artists is seemingly endless .

Stanhope Alexander Forbes - Fishermen repairing nets (FS19/263)

There is a Stanhope Alexander Forbes (FS19/263) in our sale next week which is a beautiful study of fishermen repairing nets. This was a subject Stanhope Forbes focused intently on during his early years in Newlyn. The sketch is signed and has great provenance as a gift to a former pupil of Stanhope Alexander Forbes. Scenes such as the one depicted in this lovely canvas, just 23 x 30cms, can still be seen today around the small fishing harbours of Cornwall. With an estimate of £2,000-£3,000, it is a great way of owning a work by a master of his craft, one of the very famous of our British Impressionist School artists, for a relatively small sum! It is to be sold in our Fine Picture auction on Wednesday, 3rd July 2013.
