Talmage, Algernon (1871-1939) by Scholes, Robert

Algernon Talmage (1871 – 1939) Algernon Talmage was born in Fifield, Oxfordshire. He was both a painter and an etcher. He preferred to paint figurative subjects as well as animals. Talmage lived in St. Ives, where an Artist’s Club was formed in 1888, which enabled painters of the sea such as Julius Olsson, , along with Talmage, to get together and discuss different techniques for capturing the essence of the wild and rugged north coast of Cornwall. Talmage ran an art school from 1900 to 1907. He moved to London then, and he had his first one-man show at the Goupil Gallery in 1909. Two of his works were included in a Royal Academy show in May of 1910, and the reviewer of that show in , Huntly Carter, remarked that the show would have been better if it had included more works of the quality of those by Talmage Arnesby Brown Adrian Stokes The New Age (NA 7.3:67)
