Study for the carter in 'The Lighting Up Time', Stanhope Forbes (1857-1947)
Oil on canvas, Newlyn School, late 19th century. 'The Lighting Up Time' was completed in 1902 and there are several studies for different elements of the painting in existence. This portrait of a young man holding a lighted lantern, standing by his horse and cart, is one of the studies. The final version is now in a private collection. Born in Dublin, Stanhope Forbes is regarded as the founder and leader of the Newlyn School. He attended Lambeth School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools before studying at Bonnat's studio in Paris in 1881. He settled in Newlyn in 1884 and stayed for the rest of his life. Together with his wife Elizabeth, he taught many of the next generation of artists at their school of painting. Norman Garstin, in an article on Stanhope Forbes, wrote that 'no one has done so much to hold the little community of Newlyn together as Mr Stanhope Forbes'.
