“Unloading the Catch in Squall, Whitby”
Painter in oil and who studied under Henry Dawson. Edwin moved from Nottingham to London around 1866. Ellis was a prolific and successful marine painter in the late nineteenth century. He painted mostly coastal views in Yorkshire, Wales and Cornwall and landscapes in a broad, impressionistic style similar to the late style of Charles Napier Hemy. He exhibited over two hundred works in the major galleries in London and the Regions. Suffolk Street (98) Royal Academy (25) Royal Society of British Artists (54) Agnew & Sons Gallery (11) Royal Society Artists, Birmingham (4) Dudley Gallery (6) Walker Art Gallery Liverpool (5) Manchester City Art Gallery (19) Arthur Tooth & Sons Gallery (5) plus many other galleries. Today the situation is very different and his work is often overlooked and little is recorded about his life. Edwin was born into a lace making family in Nottingham. After some study of art locally, he went on to earn his living as an artist, mainly in London. Edwin suffered periods of ill health which affected his painting. During his lifetime his paintings received considerable press comment, and a major retrospective exhibition of his work was held at the Nottingham Art Gallery in 1893. After his death in London an obituary was published in the Art Journal recognising Ellis as a painter of power and accomplishment.
