Joseph Yelverton Dawbarn artist

We visit a local artist for me.

#JosephYelvertonDawbarn (1856-1943) was born in Wisbech in Cambridgeshire (about 25 miles from where I live). Although Dawbarn read mathematics and law at Queen’s College in Cambridge he did not practice long as he did not find it enjoyable as a profession. He went on to study was art in Liverpool under the tutelage of #JohnFinnie. Dawbarn also traveled to Paris to learn under Fleury and Bouguereau.

Dawbarn loved to travel and paint. His works portray places from across Europe and the United Kingdom. Because proficient in both oils and watercolours. Dawbarn painted landscapes/cityscapes and rustic figures although he did venture into portraits and nudes.

Salen, Isle of Mull, Scotland – watercolour by Joseph Yelverton Dawbarn,,

The watercolour shown displays Dawbarn’s wonderful use of colours and skill at combining them . A fine view of the settlement of #Salen on the #IsleofMull in Scotland. I’ve been to Oban on the mainland and gazed at the Isle but not visited yet.
