    Default Great Victorian Artists

    Thomas MacKay (Flowered 1893 - 1913). Born Liverpool, studio in Littleton, near Chester. Very popular prior to 1913 before the World War swept old values away.
    Joseph Kirkpatrick Born 1872. Liverpool engraver and artist who exhibited at the Royal Academy for forty years. Was a protege of the world's most under-rated but greatest artist who ever lived, William Adolphe Bouguerrau

    George Frederick Nicholls, Liverpool (1883 - 1937) but specialised and captured the Victorian Cotswolds in all its breathtaking beauty.
    Carleton Grant (exhibited 1885 - 1899), another Royal Academy exhibitor who painted in the impressionist manner. Very emotive.
    John Abernethy Lynas-Gray (Exhibited 1897 - 1928) He was born in Oxton and studied in Liverpool and London. Another who was equal to the great Dutch and German masters.
    If this is to be the Capital of Culture, why on earth are these great artists so little known? A glance through their work captures the spirit, evokes the most exquisite sense of belonging to the past.

    True Miguel. It's a shame that we don't have the same passion for painting that we have for music. Anyway here's another couple for you: Walter Crane (1845-1915) and Sir Luke Fildes (1843-1927).

    . . . and inventors, explorers, people whose high-minded ideals have brought so many benefits to the world. All bloody ignored by the Capital of Culture Company and local authority.
    You know the reason why. They are as blissfully ignorant of their own cultural well-spring as it is possible to be. Mention true culture and their jaws would drop. They just wouldn't be able to comprehend. They think (really) that culture is a pop group that found its voice in Hamburg. It makes you want to weep.

    Seems to me that WE should create an ALTERNATIVE 'Capital of Culture' road show . . . and pull the rug right from under the feet of the incumbent practitioners of the useless arts.
