Flask Walk, Skyline

Flask Walk, Skyline , 1934

Charles Ginner

Artist:Charles Ginner
Cannes, France; 1878-1952

oil on canvas

Ginner's style changed very little after the Camden Town Group disbanded in 1913. Although this picture is painted in a muted palette, the thick, textured paint recalls Ginner's earlier work.

Ginner lived and studied in Paris before moving to London in 1910 so he was well aware of developments in French painting. His early training as an architect may account for his interest in architectural subjects.

Purchased in 1939 with income from the Macdonald Bequest.
Charles Ginner's works may possibly be of 'orphan work' status. His sister died intestate, and a distant cousin has no interest in the estate. Tate has taken the view that Ginner's rights holders are untraceable, If the position changes we should reevaluate. JM 24/11/2010 own evaluation of the legal risks.
