Display caption

Norman Garstin was a teacher and writer as well as an artist. He trained in mainland Europe and was a member of the New English Art Club and the Newlyn School. His small, freely painted landscapes catch impressionistic light effects. This picture was painted in the open air and includes the artist’s wife and his daughter Alethea, who was to become a painter herself.
