Tom Mostyn’s painting of Barnstaple bridge will be up for auction in London this week.
Painting at around the turn of that last century (that’s 1900 to you) the dreamy landscape will be be auctioned by Rosebery’s with a guide price of £1,500 to £2,500.
With a biography than begins with ‘Mostyn’s paintings were criticised by some contemporaries as “little more than orgies in paint”‘ the North Devon Journal gives a brief run-down of the artist’s career (which we will further truncate): Born in Liverpool in 1864, raised in Manchester, moved to Devon. He died in 1930.
