An excellent and strong example of his Yorkshire coast paintings.
 
Robert Leslie Howey was born in 1900 in Hartlepool. He was the son of the Staithes Group artist, John William Howey (1873 – 1938), who – although recognized by his peers as a serious artist – never practiced his art professionally, but remained employed by the gas and water board.__His son, Robert, seems to have had similar equivocations about a career in painting (although when young he cleaned his father’s brushes and befriended other Staithes artists – Rowland Hill and Mark Senior): he did not enter the West Hartlepool School of Art until he was in his thirties. He appears to have started his artistic life by drawing and sketching, visiting local beauty spots such as Runswick Bay and Whitby.
 
Howey exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Laing Gallery, Newcastle, the Redfern Gallery, London, and other provincial galleries; he also had a solo show in Hartlepool in 1949.
