    Default Dingle Paintings

    I'm trying to find the artist who did these paintings and find out where they're located?

    One painting is entitled "Riverside Dingle Bank Watercolour 1893" and and the other ""Riverside Dingle Bank Watercolour 1893" appeared in the back of the guide to the Liverpool International Garden Festival, 1984. Unfortunately, there are no references for the artist except to say that he/she was "to paint several scenes here." Both paintings look like they are of Dingle Bank.



    The publisher of the guide was Brunswick Printing and Publishing Co. Ltd. but I'm not sure whether they're still in business?

    There are two Dingle watercolourists, Thomas being the younger was painting at this time.
    There are examples of his work to view, just to see if you regognise the style? If you so wish.

    Thanks Oudeis, but the Dingle is the subject not the name of the artist.

    No.

    You surmise that. There is nothing to say what they are pictures of.

    Being a cataloguer can be a tedious job.

    One of the paintings actually says "Dingle Bank" The paintings are used in the "Origins and Background" section of the International Garden Festival Guide. Part of the festival site was on "The Cazzie" The old cast iron shore, and part of it was on the Dingle - a tree lined glen that went down to the Mersey. This has been covered on the Dingle Glen in Old Photos thread.

    I think I'm making some progress.

    The catalogue below represents the Watercolour Paintings by Florence M. Willink [Originals Remain in Family Possession].

    These documents are held at National Museums Liverpool, Maritime Archives and Library I've highlighted [in Red] the 2nd Dingle painting [in the OP] showing the lodge, which I believe is the entry below. I'll upload the rest of the paintings once I've photographed/ copied them from the MMM.

    Very interesting.
    Is that the Maritime Museum?
    I'm always impressed with people who know how to find things on-line.
