Dorothea Sharp (British, 1874-1955)

Paintings

Biography:
Born in Dartford, Kent, Dorothea Sharp did not seriously take up painting until the age of twenty-one. The death of an uncle who left her one hundred pounds enabled her to enroll at the art school in Richmond, Surrey, and she then attended the Regent Street Polytechnic, where she was encouraged by the art critics George Clausen and David Murray. However, it was in Paris that Sharp achieved her complete artistic development, studying the avant-garde Impressionism of Claude Monet, who would have the most profound and lasting effect on her art.

Although primarily a painter of landscapes with children, Sharp also designed posters and covers for magazines, and she wrote a series of articles on oil painting for The Artist. Her Impressionist paintings are in museums around the world, including the Auckland Museum; Ulster Museum, Belfast; Manchester Art Gallery; and Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne.
