I started the New Barn Gallery in Dorset, after spending my working life firstly as an antique dealer specialising in English Porcelain then 28 years working for Country Life magazine where I developed a keen interest in English watercolour paintings and artists. In more recent years I discovered Arthur Suker, an English watercolour artist, whose style and subject matter I particularly admire. Arthur Suker specialised in seascapes and coastal scenes painted mostly around theDevon and Cornwall coastline.
As a watercolour artist working in the late Victorian and Edwardian era there is little known about Athur Suker and whilst I have produced a brief chronology my research is ongoing.
This website illustrates a collection of Arthur Suker's watercolours all of which are for sale.
