William Trost Richards (1835-1905)


This Striking painting was painted be the American painter William Trost Richards and shows Lands Land in Cornwall at its most dramatic.
You can almost feel the spray of the sea in this painting and I like the golden light the painter achieves,
I shall certainly be returning to this artist again as he paid 3 or 4 visits to Britain and all his paintings deserve a airing,I

Herbert Bernard John Everett

Painting (BHC1790) Repro ID: BHC1790

In 1903 Herbert Bernard John Everertt and his wife moved to Dorset. Here he bought a yatch the ‘Warlus’ and spent much of each year cruising the South Coast of England.

The dramatic image of Lulworth Cove dates from this time and the viewpoint from the sea probably gives a much clearer idea of coastline.

Augustus John (1878-1961)

Figures on a Shore, undated (oil on wood)
Augustus john was a flamboyant character by all accounts and rather shocked the local inhabitants of Swanage with his Bohemian ways,
this painting shows cliffs in the background and two presumebly models posing.
