Object Description

Oil on panel. Signed. Park arrived in St. Ives at the age of 19 and was taught by the impressionist seascape painter, Julius Olsson, who, with Louis Monro Grier, had founded an art school in his studio overlooking Porthmeor Beach. Olsson encouraged his young pupil to broaden his horizons by enrolling at l’Atelier Colarossi in Paris to study with Delacluse. On his return to St. Ives, Park produced sparkling paintings of the town, its busy harbour and surrounding countryside, winning considerable acclaim. With a vibrant impressionist touch, he excelled at depicting the colourful hulls of the working boats and the changing effects of reflection and light on the water. He was a regular exhibitor at the principal galleries, including The Royal Academy, where he showed 72 works.
