Product Description

A beautiful oil painting on board of Thurlestone Rock, on the South Devon Coast.

The painting shows a beachcombing fisherman with his dog (a popular theme with the artist, who represents the pair quite often in his beach paintings) in front of the iconic holed rock. In the distance, you can see Hope Cove. Thurlestone Rock is an arch of Permian Red Sandstone which formed over 250 Million years ago. The name Thurlestone is from the Anglo Saxon ‘thirled’ for holed. The painting is signed G.H. Jenkins and dated 1874. It is in very good condition and is nicely framed and glazed, but in a manner you normally associate with watercolours.

The painting is by the acclaimed West Country artist George Henry Jenkins (1838 - 1914). He painted throughout Devon and Cornwall in both oil and watercolour. He is reported as an active artist between 1870 and 1910. From 1873 to 1880 he lived at 10 Saltram Terrace, Plympton, Devon near Plymouth. He also exhibited work painted in North Wales.

He exhibited at the Society of Western Artists, Plymouth Arts Club and at the RWA in Bristol. He showed a total of 20 works at the RWA between 1892 and 1895 at the Annual Winter Exhibitions, subjects included On the Lledr, North Wales and in 1892 King Arthur's Castle, Tintagel. He did not appear to exhibit in London, but did show Trawlers entering Plymouth Sound at the Dore Gallery in an exhibition of West Country artists c.1900. He also exhibited two Dartmoor views at the Elands Gallery in Exeter in 1907.
