About this artwork

Back in the late 1920s, the Empire Marketing Board commissioned a series of posters. These visuals were designed to encourage intra-empire trade and depict a picture-perfect snapshot of life in the British Empire's territories and colonies. Today, the original copies of these posters are safely stored in The National Archives, UK.

About the artist

Meet Reginald Guy Kortright, an artist born in 1877, who charmed the world with his landscape paintings in oils and watercolour until his death in 1939. This Bristolian, fondly known as Guy, was the son of Sir Cornelius Kortright.

He started his journey in the art world at Newton College, Newton Abbot, Devon. Later, he moved to Canada with his family. At the tender age of twenty, Guy chose to hone his skills under Louis Grier, who alongside Julius Olsson, ran a painting school in St Ives.

During 1899, Guy shared a canvas-filled studio in Paris with fellow St Ives students, Norman Wilkinson and Hugh Percy Heard. He eventually made St Ives his home, setting up in St Eia Studio till about 1912 before heading to Wales. World War I saw him serve in the 21st Monmouthshire Regiment, earning a Captain's rank.

His memorable works include Lelant scenes (c1912), A Lonely Shore, Silver and Grey, and Castillon de Plana (Spanish Cactus). These can be admired at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum in Birkenhead.
