Fishermen’s Huts, Southwold Harbour
About the work
Place: Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities, 2 Marsham Street
This area on the Suffolk coast is a place that Bulmer knew very well. He drew inspiration for much of his work from the East Anglian landscape, particularly the villages of Southwold and Walberswick on the Suffolk coast.
About the artist
Lionel Bulmer was born in London and studied at Clapham School of Art and the Royal College of Art. He exhibited for many years at the Leicester Galleries and later at the New Art Centre in London. He was a member of the New English Art Club, a group that had been founded in 1886 as an exhibiting society dedicated to promoting avant-garde painting techniques of the French Impressionists – the influence of which is keenly demonstrated in Bulmer’s own work.
