Arthur Briscoe

Arthur Briscoe was born in Birkenhead and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and later in Paris. He was a friend of the artist, James McBey, sailing together in Briscoe's, forty-ton yacht, the "Golden Vanity." Briscoe produced 189 etchings dealing with the sea and the sailing ship. Starting with his publisher, Harold Dickens of London, in 1925, his works were eagerly sought after and purchased by collectors throughout the 1930's. At an exhibition of Marine Art in Brussels, Belgium, an entire room was devoted to his work. His portrayal of the sea and the men who sailed it, show great dramatic quality and technical accuracy, as well as, an artistic and pleasing result. He was truly a master and scholar of the sea and its square rigged ships. Hurst, Alex, Arthur Briscoe-Marine Artist, His Life and Work, 1974. British Printmakers, 1855-1955, Garton & Co. 1992.
