Reuben Chappell
  • Description

Reuben Chappell (1870-1940) is one of the country’s best-known marine artists. In his lifetime he is said to have painted some 12,000 marine paintings which now command high prices at auction. His distinct style of painting (known as Pierhead Painting) is now highly collectible and this book has been produced in order to meet the increasing public interest in Chappell and his work. It is the first book to properly do justice to the life of this remarkable artist, containing as it does over 120 full colour representations of his work and many photographs of the artist and the locations in which he worked.

Aimed at both those who collect marine art, and at the general reader with an interest in ships and the sea, this well illustrated biography is superbly designed and produced, showing off marine art at its best.

Robert Jones is a Cornishman, born in 1943, and now established as one of the region's principal artists, He was encouraged to attend evening art classes where his teacher was instrumental in persuading the young student to pursue his passion for painting at art school. Redruth Art School (1960) and Falmouth School of Art (1961) provided the creative environment which was fundamental to his development as an artist. He is author of the highly acclaimed book on the Cornish primitive artist, Alfred Wallis.

ISBN 1841145459, hardback, 258x238mm, 150 pages. Published April 2006.
