Item description for In Field and Stable: The Life and Work of Richard Weatherby by David Bradfield...
'Seal' Weatherby (1881-1953) spent most of his active life as an artist in the Cornish countryside. And yet, until now, he has been an underrated, relatively unknown and unrecorded member of the Newlyn and Lamorna artist societies. Although gregarious and 'a favourite with the ladies', he was essentially a very private man who left few documentary records of his life. Best known for his depiction of animals, particularly horses - his family business was horse racing - his work was compared with Alfred Munnings', from whose studio he worked for a time. He had a keen interest in fox-hunting and at one stage had stables and a pack of hounds above Mullion Cove. He was also a prolific portraitist of exceptional quality and a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and London galleries. Among his best known portraits is one of fellow artist Stanley Gardiner on the Lamorna Cove quayside. Publication coincides with a major exhibition of the artist's work at Penlee House Gallery, Penzance, March-June 2007.
