Ludlow at Night

by Mark Senior

£11,500

Mark Senior is most remembered for his portrayal of the fishing community of Runswick and Staithes. His contemporaries were, Gilbert Foster, Harold and Dame Laura Knight, Frederick William Jackson, James William Booth (who was Senior’s pupil) Owen Bowen, Arthur Friedenson, Frederick William Mayor, Charles Mackie, and Roland Henry Hill who said of Senior, ‘he was one of the men for whom everybody had a great deal of affection and he regularly helped his fellow painters in a practical way’. Mark Senior was certainly entitled to the comparatively rare description of a colourist, for there was never a false note in his colour schemes which to the end of his career grew in richness and the prismatic quality sunlight can give.

Born at Hanging Heaton, near Dewsbury in 1862, Mark Senior is famous for his involvement with the Staithes artists, who painted the small fishing village of Staithes and its inhabitants on the north-east Yorkshire coast.

Mark Senior had a range of patrons including Sam Wilson, a Leeds worsted coat manufacturer. Together with Sir George Clausen he advised Wilson in building up one of the most important collections of ‘turn of the century’ English art.
