Norman Wilkinson Sold at Auction Prices

Naval painter, Etcher, Illustrator, b. 1878 - d. 1971

Artist Norman Wilkinson was a versatile, stylistically diverse painter and illustrator who specialized in marine and maritime art, and in lithographic travel poster design. His media ranged from watercolors to oils and from etchings to drypoint, including combination watercolors over graphite and oil and charcoal on canvas.

Artist Norman Wilkinson became known to the public from his posters, which hung in schoolhouses, railway stations, and government offices. Norman Wilkinson posters for sale include those he created for railway and shipping lines, lithographed from oil paintings with sweeping, spare color tones with black accents. His marine and maritime watercolors were more variegated in tone, characterized by abundant, sharp brush strokes. Norman Wilkinson paintings hang in British maritime, university, and naval and war museums, including the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Arts. You can also find other epochal marine paintings for sale at Invaluable.

At age 21 he studied academic figure painting in Paris, but was already interested in maritime subjects. Wilkinson started his career as an illustrator in 1898. with The Illustrated London News and, later, the Illustrated Mail. He was a prolific poster artist designing for multiple railways. He joined the Royal marines and traveled extensively by sea, and would later work as a submarine officer and minesweeper during World War I, as well as a consultant on dazzle camouflage. He would be brought in during World War II as Officer of Camouflage once more, focusing on the concealment of airfields. Additionally, he traveled extensively to sketch and record the work of the Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, and Costal Command through the war; 52 paintings produced during this time would be exhibited under the title The War at Sea, shown in the National Gallery in September 1944. He was elected Hon. Marine Painter to the Royal Yacht Squadron in 1919 and P.R.I. in 1937. He was knighted in 1948 and appointed a CBE in 1948. The artist created a painting titled The Approach to Plymouth Harbour for the smoking room of the RMS Titanic, which sank with the ship. One of the finest marine painters of this century, he is well represented in many public collections. Wilkinson was an active and prolific artist up to his death in 1971.

Three Centuries of British Angling Prints, Creel Press, 2010, cf. nos. 333-337 ⁂ Norman Wilkinson (1878-1971) is largely known as a marine and naval artist, but he was also a prolific illustrator of salmon and trout fishing. The artist was introduced to fly-fishing at a young age, and was already a regular spring visitor to Scotland in the years before 1914, and he resumed his salmon fishing trips after the war. It wasn't until 1920 that Wilkinson, on the suggestion of his art dealer friend Robert Dunthorne, took his artist's materials with him to Scotland with the serious intention of producing some angling etchings. No catalogue of Wilkinson's total output of etchings has been published, the great majority of it was produced in three angling books, the first published in 1924, then 24 plates in An Angler's Anthology, published in 1930, and another 24 plates in Chalmer's A Fisherman's Angles, 1931. Beazley has suggested that the total number of Wilkinson's angling etchings amounts to 71, of which at least 45 were offered for sale as single sheet prints in signed limited editions. [op. cit.
