Burning of the Spa, Scarborough, 1876

by Alphonse Neumans

£12,950

‘The Burning of the Spa, Scarborough’ by the Belgian artist Alphonse Neumans (1853 to 1893) depicts the razing to the ground of the Scarborough Spa when it was consumed by fire on September 8 1876. Scarborough Spa was officially opened in 1858 after the discovery of the health-giving waters on the coast, and drew vast numbers of visitors to the town.

There is a note on the back of the painting that indicates that it was actually painted at the scene and so constitutes an important eye-witness account of the event that must have shaken the Victorian town to its core.

Alphonse Neumans was a 19th Century Belgian artist born in 1853 and died in 1893.  He was typically a genre painter particularly interior scenes and occasionally portraits. There are fewer examples of his landscape work however, they are usually very atmospheric and painted with a realism and harmony of colour.
