Dieppe
Oil on canvas. Signed (E. Galiany).
Eugène Galien-Laloue made his debut at le Salon des Artistes Français in 1877 at the age of 23 and continued to exhibit there throughout his life. He was born in Paris and was famous for his impressionist portrayal of the city and the lively atmosphere of Parisian society in La Belle Epoque. Yet he himself led a quiet life, shunning the entertainments which Paris had to offer. He enjoyed the solitude of the countryside and moved out of Paris many times to paint along the river banks, canals and coast of Normandy and Seine-et-Marne. He used a number of pseudonyms to overcome an exclusive contract with a major gallery. These included L. Dupuy, J. Lievin and E. Galiany, which are listed in le catalogue raisonné.

Home from the Fields
Oil on canvas. Signed and dated ’07.
The only principal member of the Newlyn School to have been born in Cornwall, Harvey painted scenes of everyday life with an intimate, personal knowledge of the area and its people. He was taught firstly by the Penzance-based artist Norman Garstin and then studied in Paris at l’Atelier Julian. He was influenced by the French rural realism of Jules Bastien-Lepage and, on his return from Paris, recorded the day-to-day lives of working Cornish people, painting out of doors, in the fields and country lanes, by the harbours and on the beaches near his home. Harvey exhibited at the major galleries throughout Britain, including 55 works at The Royal Academy. A modest, retiring person, he was popular among his fellow artists and is regarded today as one of the most important painters of the Newlyn School.

Barking the Nets, St. Mawes
Oil on card. Signed with initials and dated 1913.
Also signed, dated and inscribed by the artist verso: “Summer 1913, Barking the nets, St. Mawes”. The natural fibres used in fishing nets a century ago were susceptible to rot through constant exposure to salt water. To protect them, the nets were treated in a boiled solution, made initially from tree bark and later from catechu, an extract from Indian acacia trees. The fishermen heated the mixture in a cauldron over a furnace for several hours and then soaked or “barked” their nets before hanging them to dry.
