Return of the Fishing Boats, St. Ives
Oil on panel. Signed.
Park arrived in St. Ives at the age of 19 and was taught by the impressionist seascape painter, Julius Olsson, who, with Louis Monro Grier, had founded an art school in his studio overlooking Porthmeor Beach. Olsson encouraged his young pupil to broaden his horizons by enrolling at l’Atelier Colarossi in Paris to study with Delacluse. On his return to St. Ives, Park produced sparkling paintings of the town, its busy harbour and surrounding countryside, winning considerable acclaim. With a vibrant impressionist touch, he excelled at depicting the colourful hulls of the working boats and the changing effects of reflection and light on the water. He was a regular exhibitor at the principal galleries, including The Royal Academy, where he showed 72 works.

A Summer’s Day off Brixham
Oil on board. Signed. Inscribed verso.
Park trained at St. Ives under the celebrated impressionist seascape painter Julius Olsson and in Paris at the famous Atelier Colarossi. On his return to England, Park worked from addresses in St. Ives, Brixham and Plymouth and also took a summer studio in Polperro. Brixham continued to play a significant part in his life. He began his married life there in 1919 after Army service in France during World War I, and he returned to live and work there when he was in his seventies. This sparkling example features the distinctive Brixham trawlers. A bright blue sky, colourful sails and light dancing on the waters of the Bay are classic hallmarks of this highly acclaimed artist. The painting recalls the nostalgic days of fishing under sail, when Brixham was home to one of the world’s largest fleets of wooden sailing trawlers. Between the 1880s and 1920s more than 300 Brixham trawlers were built in the town’s shipyards. Park was a regular exhibitor at the principal galleries, including The Royal Academy, where he displayed 72 works.
