Against Regatta Day, Stanhope Forbes (1857-1947)
Oil on canvas, Newlyn School. 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'. Forbes recorded many of the events and in habitants of the small fishing town. 'Against Regatta Day' is one of several paintings featuring Penzance's annual sailing Regatta and its preparation. The title seems to be knowingly ambiguous. 'Against' is likely to be being used colloquially meaning either 'again' or 'in time for'.
Unidentified building under construction, possibly the HTP warehouse on Malpas Road, Truro Cornwall. Early 1900s
Three men are standing on the scaffolding in the foreground with two further men in the distance. The same three men appear to be in a photograph of the Malpas Road warehouse being built for HTP (Hosken, Trevithick and Polkinhorn), who were agricultural and grain merchants. The architect of the HTP warehouse was Alfred J. Cornelius and the building was completed in 1911. It was later converted into 9 apartments as part of the Poltisco Wharf development. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan.
