Fred Cecil Jones

“Across the Busy Waterway of Whitby”

21"x 21"

Fred Cecil Jones was born in Bradford in 1891. He was the son of artist Maud Raphael Jones and studied at Bradford College of Art, 1915-16, and also part-time at Leeds College of Art. In 1916 Fred volunteered for the Army. His artistic talent was recognised and he served as a reconnaissance artist, where he gained the nickname, ‘Detail Jones’, for the quality of his work. He briefly taught other Army artists the skill of panoramic reconnaissance drawing, but served most of his time on the Western Front until the close of the war. After the war he drew and painted the towns and cities of North England, with work again characterized by its close observation and attention to detail. He exhibited throughout UK and his work is now in many private and public collections. "Across the Busy Waterway of Whitby" is a very fine example of the work of Fred Cecil Jones. It measures 21" square and has an interesting group of old labels on the back. It is mounted into the original simple oak frame giving an overall size of 27"x 28".
