        Dorothea Sharp (British, 1874–1955) Children at the Beach and On the Rocky Shore (a double-sided work) oil on panel signed Dorothea Sharp (lower left) 11 1/4 x 15 1/4 inches. Property from a Private Collection, Chicago, Illinois Provenance: Callard of London, Chicago Acquired from the above by the present owner, 1962 Lot note: At the Beach (Lot 39) and Children at the Beach and On the Rocky Shore (A double-sided work) (Lot 40) exemplify Dorothea Sharp's highly impressionistic style and spontaneous brushwork. Well known during her own lifetime as a painter, she captured the wonder of childhood with her depictions of children on the beach and in pastoral landscapes, as well as in domestic settings. The Editor of The Artist praised Sharp as, "one of England's greatest living woman painters," and commented upon the charm of her art: "No other woman artist gives us such joyful paintings as she. Full of sunshine and luscious colour, her work is always lively harmonious and tremendously exhilarating...the chief attractions of Miss Sharp's delightful pictures are her happy choice of subjects, and her beautiful colour schemes. Rollicking children bathed in strong sunlight, playing in delightful surroundings, her subjects appeal because they are based on the joy of life. And she presents them equally happily, with a powerful technique which enables her to make the most of her wonderful sense of colour" (Harold Sawkins, "Dorothea Sharp, ROI, RBA," The Artist, April 1935, pp. 55-8). Sharp first studied art at the Regent Street Polytechnic in London at the age of 21, and then traveled to Paris to continue her training. It was here that she became heavily influenced by the impressionists, especially Monet, with their confident brushstrokes and strong colors. She later wrote, "I think the young painters of this decade little realize what we owe to those great masters of the French Impressionist School" (Dorothea Sharp, The Student's Book of Oil Painting, New York, 1937, p. 31). However, the artist's handling of broken light and color was not only derived by her study of the impressionists, but also by instinct. She once described color as "that elusive something we cannot quite define...To have good colour sense is to be in touch with nature...Colour is emotional-it is felt, in its finer sense rather than seen. Colour cannot be taught-beyond a point-it is inborn (The Artist Magazine, April 1931, p. 48). Upon her return from Paris, Sharp settled in London, where she maintained a studio for the rest of her life. By the 1910s, though, she would spend much of the year in the art colony of St. Ives, Cornwall, drawn to its sunny skies and rocky beaches. It was here that she executed works such as At the Beach and Children at the Beach and On the Rocky Shore (A double-sided work), which delight in the pleasures of a day by the water. Children splash playfully about in breeze-ruffled waves and women contentedly lounge in bright sunshine. The thick, colorful impasto paint reveals the artist's quick use of a heavily loaded brush and her instinctive paint strokes highlight the carefree and relaxed atmosphere. In these vibrant works, Sharp skillfully renders happy memories of never-ending summer days in the sand and sea.

      • DOROTHEA SHARP, THREE CHILDREN FEEDING BIRDS,
        May. 03, 2023

        DOROTHEA SHARP, THREE CHILDREN FEEDING BIRDS,

        Est: $30,000 - $50,000

        DOROTHEA SHARP (British, 1874 - 1955) THREE CHILDREN FEEDING BIRDS oil on canvas 61.0 x 61.5 cm signed lower right: DOROTHEA SHARP PROVENANCE Private collection, United Kingdom Private collection, United Kingdom Private collection, Adelaide ESSAY Dorothea Sharp was a highly successful British artist whose impressionistic paintings of children attracted national acclaim in the first half of the twentieth century. Sharp’s paintings follow the path set by Mary Cassat and Berthe Morisot whose own studies of children are some of the most sensitive and sought-after works in the Impressionist oeuvre. In Australian art, there is a strong correlation between Sharp’s Three Children Feeding Birds and paintings such as Jane Sutherland’s much-loved Field naturalists, c.1896, in the National Gallery of Victoria. Both works depict three children caught in an unguarded moment, fascinated by what they observe; and Sharp’s painting demonstrates the artist’s own fascination in such youthful innocence.   Born to a comfortably wealthy family, Sharp was determined to be an artist from a young age following a visit to the Royal Academy. However, her family were not supportive and she only began her studies at the age of twenty-one after receiving a small legacy from an uncle. She first enrolled at the Richmond School of Landscape Painting in Surrey, then transferred to night classes at the Regent Street Polytechnic. Whilst there, she received encouragement during school visits by Sir David Murray and Sir George Clausen, two significant British painters of the time. However, the transformative event in her development happened in 1900 at the age of twenty-six, when she went to Paris and saw the work of Monet, Matisse and van Gogh. Monet’s influence can be seen in her subsequent handling of broken colour and light, whilst the inspiration of the other two can be detected in Sharp’s preference for bright outline. On her return to London, she declined a wedding proposal to instead immerse herself in the London art scene, joining the Royal Society of British artists and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. Initially working from a small back bedroom in her home at Carlton Mansions in Hampstead, London, Sharp had her first works exhibited at Royal Academy in 1901 and continued to do so until 1948. She visited the artists’ community in St Ives, Cornwall, in 1920, and was so delighted by what she found that she took one of the Porthmeor Studios which Sharp retained over many years. Whilst there, she was often to be found painting on the nearby beaches surrounded by children, mostly the daughters of fishermen, who were her chief sitters. She eventually moved to St. Ives permanently during World War II.   Sharp’s first solo exhibition in London was held in 1933 and sold out in a couple of days, despite being mounted at the height of the Depression. An elected member, then Vice-President, of the Society of Women Artists, her work was hung in the Paris Salon, and she exhibited alongside other famous contemporaries such as Dame Laura Knight and Sir Alfred Munnings. Three Children Feeding Birds demonstrates Sharp’s prodigious talent with its autumnal setting in a park, a charming and beautifully painted work which matches the description of her paintings given by the editor of The Artist magazine, that ‘her subjects live because they are based on the joy of life.’1   1.

Dorothea Sharp was born in Kent in 1871. At the age of 21 she began her art education at Richmond art school and went on to study at the Regent Street Polytechnic. On arrival in Paris, Sharp was struck by the work of Claude Monet and this was to have a lasting effect. Sharp was a member of the Society of Women Artists and served as vice-president for four years. Sharp regularly exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists and The Royal Academy during the first half of 20th century, holding her first one-woman show at Connell Gallery in 1933. Sharps' highly impressionist style captured idyllic scenes across Europe but also closer to home where she captured the British coast in St. Ives and Bosham.

Dorothea Sharp was born in Kent in 1871. At the age of 21 she began her art education at Richmond art school and went on to study at the Regent Street Polytechnic. On arrival in Paris, Sharp was struck by the work of Claude Monet and this was to have a lasting effect. Sharp was a member of the Society of Women Artists and served as vice-president for four years. Sharp regularly exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists and The Royal Academy during the first half of 20th century, holding her first one-woman show at Connell Gallery in 1933. Sharps' highly impressionist style captured idyllic scenes across Europe but also closer to home where she captured the British coast in St. Ives and Bosham.
