    A beautiful selection of flowers on a sunny day. 


    Blacklock was very much an artist of his time, born during the latter years of High Victorian painting, in style and content he drew on the traditional Victorian subject matter of rural and coastal everyday life. 

    • Highly acclaimed for his evocative and immaculate portrayals of everyday Victorian life, Blacklock’s beautiful paintings found wide favour with the establishment, with 17 of his best works being accepted for exhibition at the Royal Academy.


      His honest and realistic depictions have enjoyed enduring popularity, predominantly due to his accomplished skill as an artist and his distinct interpretation of rural scenes. His works realise consistently significant amounts in the art market.


      Influences of his upbringing in Sunderland, his time spent in an artists’ colony in Suffolk, and his proximity to the Newlyn School in Cornwall in his later years, can easily be referenced in his paintings. His work shows knowledge of the French Social Realists, such as Jean François Millet and Jules Bastien-Lepage, but is interpreted in a fashion more akin to that of Leon L’Hermitte, the renowned painter of rural France.
