The Shrimper, Richard Harry Carter (1839-1911) Featured Print

The Shrimper, Richard Harry Carter (1839-1911)

Oil on canvas, English School. Richard Harry Carter was born in Truro and became one of the buyers in Cornwall of copper for the smelting firm of Vivian & Sons, Swansea. His spare time was spent sketching around Cornwall. After a number of years, he relinquished his business appointment and devoted himself entirely to his painting. Carter's early works were chiefly sea and coastal subjects, painted in watercolour, but later he expanded his genre to include figures and oil painting. Carter was also influenced by the work of Charles Napier Hemy whose style and subjects he greatly admired and whose yacht studio he frequently visited. Many of his best works were painted in Scotland and the Shetland Isles. He also visited Volendam and Dordrecht where he found new subjects to paint. Carter exhibited at the Royal Academy for eleven years and at the New Watercolour Society, now known as the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, for eighteen years. His watercolours were often on a monumental scale, often over six feet long
