Description

Oil on canvas (painted circa 1914-18) presented in a new frame. Signed (bottom left). A label attached to the back of the stretcher reads: Artists War Fund, The Generalife, Granada, A.M.Foweraker, Carbis Bay.
Foweraker was fascinated by the effects of certain light on the landscape, particularly moonlight, as his paintings show. He is known for his use of the colour blue, and his moonlight paintings of people carrying lanterns and light shining from windows are much sought after.
The Generalife is a former palace and country estate built by the Muslim Conquerers who occupied parts of the Iberian peninsula from the 8th century onwards. It forms part of the conjunct of buildings which include the world-famous Alhambra and Albayzín in the Spanish town of Granada. He lived at Carbis Bay, Lelant, Cornwall from 1902 until the mid 1920s.
In 1898, Albert took up Art professionally, and between that year and 1912, he exhibited his work regularly. He was made a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1902, and sent 52 paintings to Exhibitions at their Galleries in Pall Mall during these years. He also exhibited at several important provincial galleries. He originated an Exhibition of works by modern Painters at Exeter, which developed into the ‘Devon And Cornwall Fine Art Society’.
Albert moved from Exeter to Lelant, Cornwall in 1902, and travelled frequently to Spain, especially the South during the early 1900s and in the 1920s. He also visited Southern France and North Africa and produced many paintings from these travels. He was a very prolific local artist and painted a large number of landscapes and local scenes from Devon, Cornwall and of course, Dorset, to which County he moved in the mid 1920s, living at Northbrook Road, Swanage for many years.
