Product Description

A very attractive, c1930, oil on board painting of Cornish buildings by Newlyn School renowned artist John Anthony Park.

The painting is not signed, but is typically his unique style and came out of the Sloop Pub, in St Ives. It shows ‘The Weir Lewis Studio’, which was probably a converted fisherman’s store. The reverse shows the ‘Winsor & Newton Ltd Oil Sketching Tablet’ mark and the size is 14 x 10 inches. It has written in faint pencil at the top and then reproduced in ink at the bottom: The Weir Lewis Studio, St Ives. The painting has been framed in cream and natural wood. Condition is very good.

John Anthony Park (1878—1962) was born in Preston, Lancashire and arrived in St Ives in 1899. He learnt from fellow artists and then trained in Paris at Colarossi's under Delacluse, before returning to St Ives in 1906. He is known for his impressionistic touch with colour and light, best known for brilliantly coloured impressionistic depictions of boats in St Ives harbour, he also painted still lifes. In the Show Day of 1924, he exhibited with the paintings he was sending away to the RA. They included the largest, ‘Drying Sails’, another of St Ives with the herring fishing in full swing, ‘Herring Time St Ives’, and the third, ‘Souvenir from France’, depicting the entrance to the harbour of La Rochelle.

Now he is probably the most highly rated of St Ives resident members. He moved to London 1933, his studio in Maida Vale close to that of Dorothea SHARP and Marcella SMITH, but returned to St Ives in 1940 where he felt more comfortable. Sadly, he died almost penniless in Preston, his wife having predeceased him. Sven BERLIN said, "He painted like an angel - simply cathedrals of light."
