This is a rare and unique GIGANTIC original 19th Century Seascape Oil Painting depicting Old Lizard Head, Cornwall, by the famous West Country artist: 'George Henry Jenkins' (1838-1914) George Henry Jenkins was a West Country artist who painted throughout Devon and Cornwall in both oil and watercolour. He is reported as an active artist between 1870 and 1910. From 1873 to 1880 he lived at 10 Saltram Terrace, Plympton, Devon near Plymouth. He also exhibited work painted in North Wales. For the most part, his work has eluded the dictionary writers mainly referenced, and he and his son have come to our notice via auction catalogues. He and his wife, Hannah had seven children, the second of which was named for him and also became an artist. Their subjects were topographical, mainly landscapes and seascapes, and their work is mainly distinguished from each other in the intensity of their colours. As stated in his entry in this index, George Henry Jr Jenkins used more vivid colours than his father, and some of his pictures were taken up as postcards in the Picturesque Devon series. Requiring some minor restoration and tender loving care to be perfect, however, fully presentable in its current 'as found' attic condition. The magnificent image portrays some fisherman working on the shoreline of Old Lizard Head with Lobster pots, whilst, before them, is the very rough Cornish sea, and an old steam vessel in the far distance.
