SOLD-“Windsor” Original Watercolour by Garmon Morris




A lovely Original Watercolour of “Windsor” is initialled GM (Garmon Morris) who flourished between 1900-1930 and was painted C Early 20th Century.
Garmon Morris was a painter in watercolour of marines and coastal scenes. This prolific artist, as well as using just his initials also appears to have painted also under the name of G. M. Avondale or just Avondale. The subjects were mostly fishing boats, shore scenes, and riverscapes, and were painted along the South Coast, with some Cornish, East Anglian and London area views. Garman Morris exhibited two watercolours at Elands Art Gallery in Exeter in 1906 and 1907, entitled ‘The Coast near Ilfracombe’ and ‘St. Michael’s Mount. This particular work of his is in what we believe to be its original framing and bears a contemporary pencil inscription verso giving the title, medium and artist’s name, together with the original gallery label – Gladwell & Co., Cheapside.
