Click to Enlarge Samuel John Lamorna BIRCH, RA RWS (1869 - 1955)
My Studio, Lamorna
Oil on canvas. Signed. Further signed and inscribed verso.
The subject is Birch’s own studio, with its colourful garden in full bloom, set beside the stream which flows through the Lamorna woods, down to the rocky cove and the sea. Birch moved to Lamorna in 1892, the year before he made his debut at The Royal Academy. As a painter of pure landscape and seascape, he loved the freshness and spontaneity of working en plein air. Although greatly influenced by the French Impressionists, he developed a distinctive style of his own. His handling of colour and his treatment of water and reflected light are instantly recognisable.

Click to Enlarge Walter LANGLEY, RI RBSA (1852 - 1922)
Mending the Quilt
Watercolour. Signed. Inscribed on the original backboard.
Literature: Roger Langley “Walter Langley, Pioneer of the Newlyn Art Colony”. Sansom & Company, 1997. Pages 172 and 176. Exhibited: The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, 1912. Langley often painted from the perspective of the wives and children who stayed at home while their loved ones were away at sea. The present work, showing the structural changes which had recently been made to the harbour at Newlyn, features some of Langley’s most popular models. The blouse worn by the young woman was originally white. It belonged to a Newlyn woman named Mrs. Tregurtha, who dyed it pink and gifted it to Langley after deciding it no longer suited her complexion.

Click to Enlarge Richard Hayley LEVER, RBA (1875 - 1958)
Morning Haze, St. Ives
Oil on canvas. Signed.
Provenance: Private collection, New York. Richard Hayley Lever is recognised as one of the most important and innovative painters working in St. Ives in the first decade of the 20th Century. Cornwall was at the forefront of British art at this time and St. Ives, where Lever spent 15 years, was renowned worldwide as a centre for seascape and landscape painting. In this beautifully executed example, Lever has skilfully accentuated the darker foreground shapes of the boats and harbour in contrast with the soft haze that suffuses the water, sky and buildings on the shore.
