Gwilym John Blockley

This biography of John Blockley is taken from a blog by Joe Hargreaves, from March 2011 … this blog is dedicated to all the G John Blockley (and would be) fans out there who are looking to show appreciation to the late great artist. Please add your comments and any stories about how John's paintings make you feel, and how it reflects in your own style … http://gjblockley-blog.blogspot.co.uk/ It appears that no one has left any comments or stories, so here are a few more items of information…

The Gates of Justice 1890 Painting by Arthur Melville Reproduction Watercolor Architecture, Watercolor Landscape, Watercolor Paintings, Watercolours, Oil Paintings, Painting Art, New Artists, Great Artists, Renoir

Past Exhibitions

Drawing on Melville's experiences of Spain and Moorish architecture, this work also shows the influence of the Italian Orientalist Alberto Pasini (1826-99), who often painted mounted troops guarding the gates of eastern cities, although the tawny palette and near-abstract handling are distinctly Melville's own.

Past Exhibitions

Melville discovered the little Atlantic port of Passages, near San Sebastian, at the end of his journey through northern Spain. Of the many views of Passages Melville painted, this is surely the most striking, both for its spectacular composition and extraordinary concentration of colour. Such is the intensity of Melville's palette that it seems almost to anticipate the colour contrasts of the Fauves.

During his return journey from Baghdad, Melville halted at Mosul, where he painted a watercolour of horsemen crossing the bridge over the River Euphrates by day. This was eventually worked up into two exhibition watercolours, of which this is the larger.

Past Exhibitions

In April 1882 Melville visited Baghdad's North Gate, where the block-like forms of the architecture clearly caught his eye, providing a strikingly geometric backdrop to this colourful market scene. Figures are deployed like chess pieces, each standing within their own pool of shadow in the midday sun.

Past Exhibitions

This work was probably produced in the mid-1880, when ice skating was a popular and fashionable recreation and Duddingston, the home of the venerable Edinburgh Skating Club, was the place for Edinburghers to go. Melville's fashionably attired lady skater and child dressed in red suggests the influence of Glasgow Boy E A Walton's watercolours of middle-class Helensburgh ladies.

Arthur Melville The Procession Of The Corpus Christi, Toledo 1890 x 56 cm) Traditional Landscape, Traditional Paintings, Watercolor Landscape, Watercolor Paintings, Watercolors, Gouache, Feast Of Corpus Christi, Watercolor Techniques, Vintage Artwork

Past Exhibitions

Melville's arrival in Toledo in 1890 coincided with preparations for the feast of Corpus Christi, which falls on the ninth Sunday after Easter and is the most significant event in that city's calendar. This striking composition is reminiscent of Monet's depiction of civic pageantry, La Rue Montorgueil a Paris. Fete du 30 Juin 1878 (Musee d' Orsay).

Melville was an enthusiastic golfer, holding the amateur record at West Herts Golf Club at Bushey in The proximity of the course at Dunbar to the Melville family home at East Linton would have meant this was familiar territory to him.
