Lovely Cornish Lass at Charterhouse
A watercolour drawing by Walter Langley is going under the hammer in the Charterhouse 18th & 19th July two day auction in Sherborne.
“Like all Walter Langley’s watercolour drawings it is beautifully executed.” Commented Richard Bromell. “Walter painted in watercolour at a time when painting in oil was more prestigious and today he continues to be highly sought after by collectors and museums.”
Walter Langley moved with his family to Newlyn, Cornwall in 1881. He came from a working class background with far left political views. His working class background enabled him to identify with the villagers and the hardships they endured. Many of his paintings reflect this sympathy for with the working class fisher folk amongst whom he lived with just like the Charterhouse drawing, entitled The Lass Who Loves A Sailor which is estimated to sell for £7,000-9,000.
