LITERATURE:
Haughton Forrest (1826-1925), artist, was born France, and his family forced to flee to Jersey, England, on the commencement of the French revolution in 1830. Haughton was subsequently educated in Jamaica, where his father had extensive sugar plantations, and at a military college at Wiesbaden, Germany. From 1858 Forrest's life was spent on the Isles of Wight and Man and in southern England where he spent much time yachting and painting marine subjects, some of which were reputedly commissioned by the Prince of Wales (King Edward VII).
In 1875 Forrest took up a grant of sixty acres (24 ha) in Parana, southern Brazil, but finding conditions unsuitable returned to London. Next year he migrated with his family to take up a grant of 100 acres (40 ha) in north-eastern Tasmania. Later he moved to Sorell where he obtained municipal appointments as bailiff of crown lands and also superintendent of police. in 1881 he moved to Wellington Hamlets, near Hobart.
Forrest spent the rest of his life after 1881 fully devoted to his art, painting many fine marine subjects and landscapes. His output, which spanned some seventy years, and varied from small oils, painted on board, to large canvases. The marine paintings were usually of stormy scenes in which the vessels were meticulously detailed and the foam-crested breakers remarkably green and translucent. By contrast, his landscapes were peaceful, with mystical backgrounds of hazy blue or purple mountains. In 1899 Forrest's views of Mount Wellington and Hobart, in conjunction with the photographs of J.W.Beattie formed the first set of pictorial stamps produced in Australia..
Forrest died on 20 January 1925 at Melton Mowbray

OTHER NOTES:
It depicts vessels at the north end of Cardigan Bay, the western shoreline of Wales. The mountains of what is today Snowdonia National Park can be seen quite clearly. Two of the mountain peaks (at 2 o'clock to the base of the masts of the principal vessel) are each surmounted by a flag on a pole. One flag can just be seen to bear a red depiction in the centre of a white area, the flag used by Wales in the 19th century. This illustrates the extent to which the artist was prepared to go in his accurate depiction of very small subjects. Ayling, G. The Forrest Project

Haughton Forrest (1826-1925) Britain Australia - Plymouth Fishing Boat at Mid Channel Lightship off Guernsey

Lot 46: Haughton Forrest (1826-1925) Britain Australia - Plymouth Fishing Boat at Mid Channel Lightship off Guernsey

Auction Date: Mar 05, 2019

Estimate: AUD6,000 - AUD8,000

Description: Haughton Forrest (1826-1925) Britain Australia - Plymouth Fishing Boat at Mid Channel Lightship off Guernsey. Haughton Forrest (1826-1925), artist, was born France, and his family forced to flee to Jersey, England, on the commencement of the French revolution in 1830. Haughton was subsequently educated in Jamaica, where his father had extensive sugar plantations, and at a military college at Wiesbaden, Germany. From 1858 Forrest’s life was spent on the Isles of Wight and Man and in southern England where he spent much time yachting and painting marine subjects, some of which were reputedly commissioned by the Prince of Wales (King Edward VII). In 1875 Forrest took up a grant of sixty acres (24 ha) in Parana, southern Brazil, but finding conditions unsuitable returned to London. Next year he migrated with his family to take up a grant of 100 acres (40 ha) in north-eastern Tasmania. Later he moved to Sorell where he obtained municipal appointments as bailiff of crown lands and also superintendent of police. in 1881 he moved to Wellington Hamlets, near Hobart. Forrest spent the rest of his life after 1881 fully devoted to his art, painting many fine marine subjects and landscapes. His output, which spanned some seventy years, and varied from small oils, painted on board, to large canvases. The marine paintings were usually of stormy scenes in which the vessels were meticulously detailed and the foam-crested breakers remarkably green and translucent. By contrast, his landscapes were peaceful, with mystical backgrounds of hazy blue or purple mountains. In 1899 Forrest's views of Mount Wellington and Hobart, in conjunction with the photographs of J.W.Beattie formed the first set of pictorial stamps produced in Australia.. Forrest died on 20 January 1925 at Melton Mowbray. This fishing boat appeared to have been portrayed by Forrest for its owner at Plymouth. This painting contains a number of identifying features. The Plymouth licence number PH 194, commencing with the PH for Plymouth is shown near midships just below the gunwhale. The reverse contains words in the characteristic hand-writing of Haughton Forrest, the French name of the vessel, the Marie Forslain (?) .... together with the very English owner's name Mr Widdicombe (?).. It has been estimated from the movements of the artist that this painting could have been completed prior to 1860, which might indicate the reason for the sails of these boats not carrying the PH code for Plymouth. We know that at this time the artist married the widowed. Susan Somerville, who resided with her long-standing Somerville family at West Plymouth. The fee of 25/- in the 1860s would have been a significant item for portraying a fishing boat for its owner. This is the only painting known where the artist has included a lightship. There were very few lightships in the west of the English Channel, most being used to warn ships of the Sands at the eastern end. Since lightships are non-moving, this painting was depicted mid-Channel between Guernsey and Plymouth.
