John Spence Ingall

“Yorkshire Landscape” £395

14"x 21"

John Spence Ingall (1850-1936) was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire and became a printer and designer before studying art locally, then later the Académie Julian in Paris, and was well into middle age before he began to style himself a full time artist. He regularly visited the Runswick Bay and Staithes area on the Yorkshire coast, just north of Whitby, to paint in the open air. Continuing to live in Barnsley, he became a respected business man and freemason. Finally, around 1900, he moved permanently to Runswick Bay. He was a founder member of the Staithes Group of Painters whose first exhibition was held in Staithes in August 1901. His winters were spent in Tangier. The present painting "Yorkshire Landscape" measures 14"x 21" and is unsigned. It is inscribed in pencil on the back with the title and artist's name. It is mounted and framed into a gilt swept frame giving an overall size of 22"x 30".
