John Ward Knowles (1838-1931) originally trained in art and photography before concentrating on work as a stained glass designer in York. He renovated a building in York which became a hub of artistic endeavour with workshops producing not only stained glass but all kinds of ecclesiastical decoration including beautiful embroideries and tapestry work produced by the Knowles family. The building still retains much of his work, installed when he lived here including a collection of priceless late Victorian and Edwardian stained glass. Knowles continued to live and work here until his death at the age of 93 and his sons continued the business up to 1953. The building remained in the Knowles family until 1999 when it was purchased by Jonathan Cainer to become the world's first psychic museum.
"Robin Hood's Bay" is an oil painting on canvas measuring 16"x 24". It is signed lower right with a monogram and is dated 1893 and is framed in the original gilt frame giving an overall size of 24"x 32".
