Liss Llewellyn Fine Art - 20th Century British Art

Harold H J Beales (fl. 1920/30)   BIOGRAPHY

Adoration of the Magi, late 1920s
Framed (ref: 481)

Titled on a label on the reverse
Tempera on panel, 15 1/2 x 11 1/4 in. (39.4 ◊ 28.5 cm.)


Exhibited: British Artistsí Exhibition, Ferens Art Gallery, Hull, late 1920s

In a gilded oak lap-jointed frame.

The label for the British Artistsí Exhibition held at the Ferens Art Gallery on the reverse of the painting suggests a date of post-1927 for this work, the date when the Ferens was built. Stylistically it can be dated to the late 1920s or early 1930s and, in a broader context, fits in with the tempera revival of this period. Relatively little is known about Beales, who lived in Hampstead, and is recorded as having exhibited a single painting at the Royal Academy in 1948.
