British 1880 - 1962 Park moved to St Ives at the age of 18 and became probably the best known of the early St Ives painters. He studied under Julian Olsson who encouraged him to study in Paris. From 1905 he attended the Atelier Colarossi where he was a contemporary of Modigliani. Strongly influenced by the French Impressionists, Park's work is always brightly coloured and spontaneous. He exhibited coastal and fishing scenes at the Royal Academy, the Paris Salon and St Ives Society of Artists. His work is held in the public collections of Manchester City Art Gallery, Salford Art Gallery and the Tate.
