Art print by Dorothea Sharp #15409

About the artist


Dorothea Sharp (1874-1955) was born in Kent and is best known for her naturalistic studies of children and for her landscapes.

She studied at the Regent Street Polytechnic and also in Paris. In 1903 she became an Associate of the Society of Women Artists, becoming a full member five years later, and she was also elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 1906 and 1923 respectively.

Sharp exhibited at The Royal Academy from 1901-1948 and lived for most of her life in London. Influenced by the work of the Impressionists, the clarity of her light, her unusual use of colour and her free brushwork all combined to emphasise her significant role in the development of twentieth century British art. Her works are now exhibited in museums throughout the world.

Purchased as a birthday present for my wife (she showed great interest in this artist following an Antiques Roadshow 'find'), the print was exactly what she wanted. Bought framed, the print looks really good - and the framing has been superbly executed. I would have been happier had it taken less time to supply, as it arrived after her birthday, but I realised that when I ordered it. The packaging was more than adequate to protect the print. Very satisfied.
