About Albert Moulton Foweraker
Albert Moulton Foweraker was born in 1873 at Exeter and died in 1942. He lived in Devon and Cornwall and was a noted impressionist artist.
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.
He moved from Exeter to Lelant, Cornwall in 1902, and travelled frequently to Spain, especially the South during the early 1900’s and in the 1920’s. He also visited Southern France and North Africa, and produced many paintings from these travels.
He was also a very prolific local artist, and painted a very 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.
