â€˜Harvesting near Burnsallâ€™
A British impressionist painter born in Manchester. His style is heavily influenced by his tutor J.W.Buxton Knight. He lived firstly in Southport then moved to Yorkshire, in Bolton Abbey then Nessfield near Ilkley. Most of his paintings, often painted en plein air were painted in Yorkshire. His snow and harvesting scenes are mostly sought after by collectors.
He was a member of the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, the Liverpool Academy and the Sandon studios society. From 1994 he exhibited annually for almost fifty years at the RA, and from 1900 at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Glasgow Institute and the Royal Society of Painters in Oils. He also exhibited extensively at the Walker Gallery in Liverpool and at the Manchester City Art Gallery both of which house his works today.
He died in 1958 and his ashes were scattered in his beloved Scotland where he spent his annual holidays painting many views of the lochs and harbours.
