Group of Seven:
Franklin Carmichael 1890-1945
Canadian - Attributed .
The Roadshow has turned up countless new finds from Canada's most important artists, the Group of Seven.
All in all 37 finds in a decade
^ Frank Carmichael was born in Orillia, Ontario and was the youngest member of the original Group of Seven.
Although one of the original members, he is perhaps more closely associated with the artists who joined in later years such as Fitzgerald, Casson and Holgate. he was always on the fringe of the Group, probably due to the difference in age or because he worked full time as a commercial artist. never the less, one of Canadas' principal painters.
Sir William Fettes Douglas PRSA
Oil on canvas "The Secret Convert"
Self taught, Douglas abandoned a career in
banking for the arts and became an authority on aspects of Italian arts, a curator at the National Gallery of Scotland, and President of the RSA. Perhaps most noted for his still lifes, he took meticulous care in depicting books, antiques and curios of which he had a fine and extensive collection. However, in later years he became more inspired by landscape and produced numerous watercolours, with the National Galleries of Scotland now holding a large collection.
The Newlyn School consisted of a group of British painters who settled in and around Newlyn in the west country, in the 1880's. Influenced and drawing extensively on the local colour, mainly provided by the fishermen: and their wives.
The leaders started the movement in favour of plein air in England, following the lead of the French.
HENRY JOHN BODDINGTON
FRANK MILTON ARMINGTON
Canadian. (Biography Click here)
Henry John Boddington was the second of the six sons of Edward Williams, all of whom were artists.
Born Henry John Williams, he married Clarissa Eliza Boddington In 1832 & cleverly adopted her maiden name -
This gave him a new and individual identity and set him aside from his brothers. By 1842, with an excellent and established reputation as a painter of landscapes, particularly woodland and village scenes, he became a member of the Royal Society of British Artists. This promoted him as the only member of his family to achieve the honour. he collaborated on occasion with the British sporting artist John Frederick Herring, Sr., who would contribute to his works by painting horses & animals into Boddington's pre prepared landscapes.
During his life, His works were exhibited at the Royal Academy and can be seen at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the National Museum of Wales, City Art Galleries of, Blackburn, Glasgow,Preston, York, Sheffield and the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, Mass.

From 1827 to 1830 he worked in Brussels, where he spent time in the studio of Eugène Verboekhoven whose animal subjects, together with those of Cuyp and Potter, had a profound effect upon him. Following the political disturbances which led to Belgian independence in 1830, Cooper returned early to London in 1831 and embarked on a very long and successful career as an animalier.
Cooper exhibited widely, at the British Institution 1833-59 and Royal Academy 1833-1902; elected, Associate Royal Academician in 1845 and Royal Academician in 1867. He died in Canterbury on 7th.of February in 1902.
|Brampton & Shoppers World Roadshow gave us two good examples of canine pictures:|
Frederick Thomas Daws.
R.A. (British, b.1878)
Frederick Thomas Daws. R.A. (British, b.1878)
F T Daws, Ranks amongst the most notable of British canine portraitists.
Widely sought after, the artist painted many portraits of rare breeds and for some highly notable owners. His works are and always have been widely collected and are represented in the Permanent Collection of the Kennel Club alongside, Maud Earl, John Emms, Frances Fairman and Arthur Wardle.
Daws found his true vocation early in life, exhibiting his paintings, "Companions in Trouble," at the Royal Academy at only the age of eighteen.
In 1896 and in 1897 he had two others accepted.
F. T. Daws also worked in bronze and many of his models were reproduced in porcelain. He was a master of canine anatomy and his bronzes, while little known, are important records of top-winning show dogs.
His most notable however being:
An American Monarch and The Keddah Gate.
Not only was he a notable painter of dogs but also as a formidable sculptor. Exhibiting Bronzes and Oils at the Salon Des Artistes Francais in Paris.
Hutchinsons Book Of The Dog carries many illustrations by Daws.
Dawes lived in Beckenham in Kent until his death.
George Smith ARMFIELD R.A.
Or is it by his talented cousin Edward Armfield (British, 1817 to 1896) ?
Difficult to say as both artist painted in each others pockets, exactly the same subjects, in an almost indiscernible and equal style and both were regarded highly enough to be Royal academicians!!
Between 1840 and 1875, George Armfield exhibited a great number of canvases throughout Britain, most notably at the British Institution, at Suffolk Street and the Royal Academy. Due to the high quality of his works, many of his smaller pictures were passed off as or re-signed with the signature of the famous Edwin Landseer, the English 'master' of animal paintings.
The attention to detail in this piece though puts me very much in mind of George.
The oil painting is cut down from its original canvas and in so doing, the likely signature has gone forever.
This large unsigned oil painting of a pair of hunting terriers by a rabbit hole, was stuck in a porch and exposed to the elements for years. That's when the owner expressed an interest in it and it was given to her by her grandfather just before he passed away.
Pets & Sporting Dogs
During the 19th century in England there was a growing love for domestic animals with many artists receiving commissions to portray them. Though there were hundreds of artists who painted pictures of animal during this period, only a handful dedicated their lives to this pursuit and George Armfield was one of them.
