About the artist:
Wilfred Knox (1884-1966)
He specialised in watercolour landscapes in a Turneresque manner, frequently of Venice and sometimes of Oriental scenes. He also painted clipper ships plying the North Atlantic trade in a more exact manner.
Knox began his working life as a Policeman in Durham and a Sergeant Mechanic on Blackburn B2 bombers in the first World War. After the War he took up painting.
Much of his early work used the pseudonym A.D.Bell - and studies of flowers for the family used 'Yvonne'. He also used R.McGregor and W.McGregor.
