George Edward Horton 1859-1950

Born in North Shields. On leaving school he became a delivery boy for his father, a butcher. His mother bizarrely asked him to leave home when she found him drawing an animal’s skull. Having moved in with relatives, he decided to become a professional artist; his mother doing the art world a great service!
He exhibited widely in the north before moving to London in 1918. From the late 1890s he made regular trips to Holland. His work is very distinctive and has always been considered undervalued commercially. Hopefully the recent recognition and increase in value of works by the Staithes Group will lead to Horton’s work receiving the acclaim it deserves.
