GEORGE WALKER

Polperro Harbour
Oil on canvas signed lower left
19” x 23.1/2” (SOLD)


George Walker is listed as a sculptor, in one of our art reference books, who is noted for exhibiting at The Royal Academy in 1927. This RA exhibit would almost certainly have been a three-dimensional piece of artwork.

This oil painting is thickly painted with heavy impasto brush and palette knife work everywhere, so it is almost three-dimensional too, which might be expected from an artist who was primarily a sculptor.

This is a wonderfully colourful, charming, delightful composition, showing careful study of Cornish harbour features, figures, nearby fisherman’s cottages and well observed boats, all delightfully drawn and nicely placed within the whole of the canvas surface.
