This original oil painting by Georges Ricard-Cordingley depicts a young girl sitting on the beach in Normandy.

 

Upon moving to England at the age of nineteen, he immediately found startling success; his first works in the England were well received by the public, and  Queen Victoria acquired three of his paintings for Osborne House on the Isle of White.

  • Described as “a painter of colourful greys”, Ricard-Cordingley’s deeply atmospheric and romantic maritime landscapes display his nuanced understanding of sea mists and skies, encountered during decades of travel across the Atlantic and Mediterranean on trawlers. While Ricard-Cordingley would face danger and even a shipwreck on his travels, it was precisely this first-hand experience of the ocean which lend its art a uniquely truthful quality.

     

     

    Born to middle-class parents in Lyon, Ricard-Cordingley displayed an artistic talent from a young age. The nuanced tones and subtle harmonies within his work owe much to the Lyonnais School of painting, and the great artists that he studied under in his youth,  such as Cazin, Lefebvre, and Benjamin-Constant. Upon moving to England at the age of nineteen, he immediately found startling success; his first works in the England were well received by the public, and  Queen Victoria acquired three of his paintings for Osborne House on the Isle of White.
