About

San Giorgio, Maggiore, Venice. 1930. Drypoint. 8 3/16 x 12 1/8. Signed in pencil. Published by James Connell, in an edition of forty proofs. A rich impression printed on cream wove paper with full margins. Signed in pencil. Housed in a 16 x 20-inch archival mat, suitable for framing. From his days at the Royal College of Art in the 1920s, Holmes had been recognized as a significant artist. He worked in several media: above all in etching, though also in wood engraving, line engraving, aquatint, mezzotint, drawing and watercolor, the subjects being mainly landscapes, townscapes and architecture, with Italy and England as particular favourites. (In recent years a number of oil paintings of mainly Cornish landscapes and the coast, apparently painted for his own enjoyment and recreation, have also come onto the market, and these show that he was also a significant artist following the Newlyn School tradition as well). During his 1927-28 period studying in Italy he was awarded the prestigious Prix de Rome for his drypoint etching The Flight into Egypt. This was followed by very many exhibitions and sales, including over the years 16 one man exhibitions in London, one each in Glasgow and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, a number in Leicester, while over the years he had many works accepted for group exhibitions and salons, including 11 in the Royal Academy annual exhibitions, and 6 in those of the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, and in an exhibition of War Artists held in the National Gallery, London. He also traveled widely abroad, most notably in the United States, where his watercolors, drawings, and etchings, especially of American subjects, including the Niagara Falls and the deserts of Utah, are particularly sought after and appreciated. His work is represented in the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American Art, Washington, and the collections of the Art Museums of Harvard, the National Gallery of Canada, and of important art museums in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Australia. In the UK there are groups of works or collections in the Craven Museum, Skipton, and the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery, Leicester, and Holmes are also represented in several other British collections including the Tate Gallery, London. Kenneth Holmes retired after 22 years as Principal of the Leicester College of Art in 1956, and after moving to Cornwall where he continued to practice and exhibit as an artist. He died in Camelford, Cornwall, in September 1994.
