Course Participant

Stanhope and Elizabeth Forbes both studied separately in Europe and settled in Newlyn, with Stanhope being dubbed ‘the father of the Newlyn School.’ As a husband and wife ‘team’ they helped gain national recognition for the colony of artists in Newlyn with their plein-air inspired paintings and through the founding of their own School of Painting. Their marriage was one of equals, where Elizabeth continued to be a professional artist at a time when this was not always deemed acceptable.
