Wilfred Jenkins (British Victorian painter, 1857-1936)


Wilfred Bosworth Jenkins was a little known Victorian artist whose work is, according to the Dictionary of British Artists, now beginning to arouse interest as he painted moonlit street and dock scenes in the style of J. Atkinson Grimshaw🎨.
As with the latter his works, often moonscapes, are incredibly atmospheric depicting a gothic view of Victorian England that inspires as many people today as in Jenkins’s own lifetime.

Josephine Wall (British, 1947)


"The art of painting is more than a career to me", she says, "it is an all consuming obsession and a love of colour and form. In fact, if I am away from my easel for too long I become restless and anxious to paint again" - Josephine Wall.

Wall's paintings are mainly influenced and inspired by Arthur Rackham, with lesser influences from surrealist artists such as Magritte and Dalí, and the romanticism of the pre-Raphaelites.
A number of her works were exhibited in Teheran and Tokyo during 1974 and her first solo exhibition took place the following year in Swindon. Josephine and her paintings were the subject of a special feature on Southern Television in 1990.
Following a visit to the Spring Fair in Birmingham in 1993 she signed contracts with firms in Britain and Switzerland to publish her work as prints, posters and cards for worldwide distribution.
Her originals and limited edition prints by are often sold through Courtenay's Fine Art and Courtyard of Romance.
