Norman Garstin - Among the Pots

Norman Garstin was a teacher and writer as well as an artist. He trained in mainland Europe and was a member of the New English Art Club and the Newlyn School. His small, freely painted landscapes catch impressionistic light effects. This picture was painted in the open air and includes the artist’s wife and his daughter Alethea, who was to become a painter herself.

Mr. Norman Garstin, as a rule, with a large party of students not later than the middle of June, to make for some small old-fashioned town in Holland, Belgium, or France, some little bourg from which the tide of has ebbed, leaving the gently to decline into a p i c t u resque old age. These are not easy to find, and when one does happen upon what seems an sketching ground, the chances are that the accommodation is so limited that it will not suffice for so numerous a party.
