Fred Lawson

“Above Redmire”


Fred Lawson was born in Yeadon, Leeds in 1888. He studied at Dewsbury Technical College and won a scholarship to Leeds School of Art. He then went to South Kensington College of Art where he gained silver and bronze medals for drawing. On a painting trip to Yorkshire in 1910 he chose to settle in Wensleydale, the inspiration for much of his work. He made regular artistic and literary contributions to the Dalesman magazine and exhibited both in his own area and also at Galleries including Liverpool, Royal Academy, R.I., and Glasgow. This attractive watercolour by Lawson is mounted and framed in a gilt frame giving an overall size of 14"x 19". It is signed lower left and inscribed on the reverse by the artist with the title "Above Redmire". It is also inscribed "Wensleydale Moorland".
