About

Dorothea Sharpe ROI RBA (British, 1874 – 1955) Summer days Signed with monogram ‘D.S.’ (lower left) Oil on canvas board 7.3/8 x 8.7/8 in. (18.8 x 22.5 cm.) Born in Dartford, Kent, Dorothea Sharpe attended Richmond Art school and then Regency Street Polytechnic where her work was admired by George Clausen and David Murray. She went to Paris, first encountering the work of the impressionists (in particular Claude Monet) which would result in her Impressionistic and spontaneous style. First a member and then Vice President of the Society of Women Artist’s, she was elected a member of the British Society of British Artists in 1907 and the Royal Institute of oil painters in 1922. She exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1901 to 1948. After her first one woman show at the Connell Gallery in 1933 she was described by Harold Sawkins (editor of The Artist) as one of England’s greatest women painters. Throughout the 1920s and 30s she did many scenes in Bosham, West Sussex and St. Ives, Cornwall befriending Marcella Smith who became a lifelong friend. Sharpe was made an honorary member of St. Ives Society of artists in 1928. This painting is likely to be a plein air sketch from her time in St. Ives. In this example there are very bold and free brushstrokes providing thick impasto in places, the Impressionist style summoning a shapshot of a day by the seaside in the 1920s.
