Product Description

A beautiful watercolour painting of a couple walking the coastal path from Salcombe, Devon to Bolt Head.

In the sea, on the left, are some fishing boats. The painting, which dates around 1880, is signed G.H. Jenkins. It is in very good condition and is mounted, framed and glazed.

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.
