Clovelly Harbour by Edward Richard Taylor RBSA (1838-1911)

There is plenty happening in this fine late 19th century oil painting by the renowned Birmingham artist. A young mother with child greets her husband, a group of fishermen chatter and a laden donkey is led down the quaint harbour steps.

Oil on canvas, 22" x 30", signed.

Presented in a fine gilt frame.

Edward Richard Taylor RBSA (1838-1911) was an English artist and educator. He painted in both oils and watercolours. He became a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 1879. Taylor taught at the Lincoln School of Art, where amongst his pupils were William Logsdail and Frank Bramley, and became influential in the Arts and Crafts movement as the first headmaster at the Birmingham Municipal School of Arts and Crafts from 1877-1903. In December 1898, he founded Ruskin Pottery at Smethwick, Staffordshire. Mentioned in Marion Whybrow's 1911-20 list of artists in and around St Ives; he died in the First World War.
