Adolphus Knell
British, (b.1849, fl.1870-1890)
Shipping in the Morning & Shipping in the Evening
Oil on board, pair, both signed

Adolphus Knell was born on 22 March, 1849 in Kentish Town, London to the artist William Adolphus Knell (1801-1875) and Susannah Williams. His half-brother William Calcott Knell (1830-1880) was also an artist. The family lived at Green Lodge and later 3 York Place in Kentish Town where he would undoubtedly have received tuition from his father.

He initially worked as a wood engraver, however by the time of his marriage on 10 April, 1873 to Lucy Tucker he was working as an artist. Together they had 2 children and lived at 64 Falkland Road, Kentish Town. By 1891, he had moved closer to the Kent coast to live at 5 Vicarage Road, St Lawrence, near the busy port of Ramsgate. He seems to have travelled around and is known to have visited Cardiff in 1911 and is also believed to have spent his later years living in Queen Square, Bath.

Like his father, Knell was known for painting marine scenes. Many of his works tend to be at sunset or dawn or feature boats bathed in moonlight and tend to be on a smaller scale.

Presentation: The paintings are housed in new, English made gilt frames which are in excellent condition.
Condition: As with all of our original antique oil paintings, these works are offered in ready to hang gallery condition, having been professionally cleaned, restored and revarnished.
