Don Hale of Coast & Country magazine
contacted me about two E C Quayle paintings that are being
offered for sale. The
owner is a keen Christian, who intends to use proceeds to help
raise funds towards her missionary work in Ghana.
paintings are from a private collection and the owner's great
grandfather was apparently a good friend of the artist when he
lived in Birkenhead.
grandfather worked in the shipyard and supported Quayle by
lending him funds to buy paints in the early days. As a
gesture of goodwill, the artist then supposedly gave him these
original watercolour paintings. They were painted
c1895-1902 The paintings pictured below: Laxey Glen
