Product Description

An attractive Victorian oil painting on board of Halton Quay, on the river Tamar, on the border between Devon and Cornwall.

The painting, which is nicely framed, shows a river scene at low tide, with a beached boat up against the quay and with some buildings in the background. It is signed and dated 1877. 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.
