Product Description

A beautiful oil on canvas by the British impressionist John Noble Barlow, portraying ‘St Ives. Harbour by moonlight.’

John Noble Barlow (1861-1917) was an English land and seascape painter. Born in Manchester, his life can be split into three distinct periods:

His early years were spent Travelling across western Europe, first in Paris and later in the Low Countries. Under Jules Joseph Lefebvre and Paul Delance, he would learn the artistic principles that would sustain his subsequent career.

In the USA he found the beginning of his successes as an artist. He became a member of the Providence Art Club, exhibiting frequently at the National Academy of Design and the Art Institute of Chicago. Even now, he retains a presence on that side of the Atlantic, where many of his paintings still reside, having been sold in a New York auction of 1899.

Barlow returned to England and married Marie Elizabeth Johnson in 1891. A year later he settled in St. Ives, where he would remain for his most of his life, having developed an affinity to that picturesque town. He painted the rugged coast and wooded valleys of western Cornwall. At his studio in Lamorna, he taught younger artists, including Charles Walter Simpson, who were coming to the area at the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1896, Barlow became a member of the Royal Society of British Artists and, in 1916, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He received medals at both the 1899 Paris Salon and the 1900 Paris Exposition.

Though he is often said to have similarities to the Newlyn School, Barlow’s work is of a different period, firmly influenced by his training in Paris and his admiration for the Barbizon painters of the 19th century.

The painting bears the signature ‘J. Noble Barlow’ in the bottom left corner, as well as the date of 1911. On the reverse, a second signature of the artist can be seen, as well as ‘Moonlight St Ives.’ It has been mounted in a gilt-gesso ‘Newlyn School’ frame.
