Description

Langley is often regarded as the pioneer of the Newlyn School, as he was the first of the group to settle in the village, setting up his studio in 1882, following his visit to the village two years earlier. He remained in West Cornwall until his death in Penzance in 1922. Langley began his training at the Birmingham School of Design and in the studio of the lithographer, August Heinrich Biermann, before studying at the South Kensington Schools in London. He initially established himself as a lithographer, working with his former master, however, in 1879, he abandoned this early career preferring to concentrate on painting.

This early view, which dates from circa 1880, is drawn at Tredavoe, a village to the south-west of Newlyn
