Silver Morning, Aldeburgh 1932 by Algernon Talmage
Algernon Talmage was born in Fifield Oxfordshire, the son of Rev. John Mayow Talmage a clergyman of Cornish stock. During his childhood, Talmage got into an accident with a gun, permanently injuring his right hand, as a result Talmage painted with his left hand and was exempt from active service in the First World War. In 1892, Talmage studied under Hubert von Herkomer at the Herkomer School of art in Bushey. During his time at Herkomer, Talmage painted alongside Lucy Kemp-Welch, both of whom had a great interest in painting landscapes and horses. From there he moved to St Ives, Cornwall, where he joined the St Ives School. During his time in Cornwall Talmage founded an artists club which was greatly influenced by the Cornish coastline, Talmage's time in Cornwall was significant in establishing his characteristic mellow palette and enchanting use of light.
