Footnotes

  • Joseph Kirkpatrick is best known for his landscape paintings, usually works on paper, and the subjects are generally rather sentimental rural scenes. Born in 1872, he did exhibit four oil paintings at the Royal Academy, between 1898-1903, with titles such as ‘The Gentle Art’ and ‘Springtime’. Interestingly, he must also have travelled to North Africa at this time, as his 1903 exhibit was called ‘The Marsham Gate, Tangiers’, which judging from the number, would also have been an oil. For the next twelve years the artist did not exhibit at the RA, and by 1915 he was living in London, where he remained until the end of the war. By 1928 he had moved to West Sussex, near Arundel, where he died in 1930.

    At the time that 'Ophelia' was painted, Kirkpatrick was living in Castle Street, Liverpool, which would tie in with the provenance of the work. It is likely therefore that it was either a private commission, or exhibited in Liverpool and purchased there by the family of the present owner.
