Today, we visit a northern artist by name of #VictorNobleRainbird (1888-1936). He was born in North Shields in the U.K. His early education was at Armstrong College – now Newcastle University. His studies were highlighted by several awards. He further studied at the Royal College of Art. His paintings predominately portray the north of England although he did travel into Europe (France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. His European works mostly display Dutch fisher folk, Rouen, Amiens and Dieppe. While his British scenes display the sea and seafront around North Shields and numerous British city scenes.
Victor also worked with stained glass creating a number of windows for several churches in the North.
The watercolour in my collection shows Stonegate in the city of York. Stonegate is one of the most attractive and architecturally varied streets in York.
