About the artist
James George Philp was born in Falmouth and first exhibited work at the Royal Academy in 1846. Much of his work from this point was produced in watercolour, a medium for which he is generally associated with, which makes the oil painting displayed here of particular interest as it was painted in the period prior to his shift to watercolour. Philp became a member of the New Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1856.
