Discover original Newlyn School paintings for sale from the leading Newlyn School artists. The Newlyn School of Artists was pioneered by the arrival of Birmingham artists Walter Langley and Edwin Harris in 1882 and 1883. These artists sought a British equivalent to Concarneau and Pont-Aven, where they had experienced the en-plein air development in French realism championed by Jules Bastien-Lepage. Stanhope Alexander Forbes, who arrived in 1884, is widely cited as 'the father' of the Newlyn School. Other founding members include Frank Bramley, Frederick Hall, Albert Chevalier Tayler, Frank Richards, Thomas Cooper Gotch, Elizabeth Forbes and Henry Scott Tuke prior to settling in Falmouth. Harold Harvey and Dod Procter were amongst a later generation of Newlyn artists to study under Forbes. In the late nineteenth century, Newlyn was the leading avante garde colony of artists and dominated national showcases such as the Royal Academy exhibitions.
