Original Watercolour ‘Evening At Westleton’ Suffolk By Martin Hardie 31/08/1939
I love 💕 this watercolour, titled Evening at Westleton in Suffolk, by Martin Hardie and what’s so special is that he finished it on the 31st August 1939 and dashed home because of the international crisis concerning Hitler and next day we were at war. (Label verso on frame and picture itself)
Watercolour painter, printmaker, writer and museum curator, born in London. After studying at Cambridge University Hardie studied art at the Royal College of Art under Frank Short. Hardie went on to become keeper of the departments of painting and engraving, illustration and design at the Victoria and Albert Museum, from which he retired in 1935. He exhibited watercolours in a traditional style at RA, RSW, RWS, RSMA, NEAC and elsewhere, along with fine etchings at RE. The Victoria and Albert Museum plus many regional galleries hold his work. He was a distinguished writer on art, notably of the standard three-volume work Watercolour Painting in Britain. Lived at Tonbridge.
