Oil on canvas 26 x 36 inches

Born in Morpeth, Northumbria and taught to paint by his father (Robert?).
The family moved to Sheffield when Joseph was quite young but then they moved to London in the late 1860’s it seems.
Joseph became a maritime and coastal painter. There are a number of different members of the family all exhibiting from addresses in Mansfield Road in Kentish Town during the 1870’s and 1880’s.
In looking through the works given to be by Joseph Wrightson that are held in Public Collections it is quite obvious that there is some confusion over his brother(?) James, because of the range of different styles.
Joseph Wrightson exhibited his work from 1866 to 1894. 4 at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; 3 at Manchester City Art Gallery; 41at the Royal Society of British Artists; 5 at the Royal Academy and 23 at the Hibernian Academy.
McIntyre lived in London and later settled in Sheffield where in
1888 he is recorded living at 2 Market Place.

This charming piece shows a good understanding of the Staithes and St. Ives painters. The texture created from the lime work wall to the girl’s dresses are superb.
