Charles Ginner (1878-1952)

The Barges, Leeds

Ginner came late to painting, having worked in an architect's office in Paris before starting to study art in 1904. He spent most of his life in France before moving to London 1909. There he met Gilman and Gore on the (alphabetically selected) hanging committee for the Allied Artists' Association in 1910. He moved to Camden in 1911 and was a founder member of the group.

Ginner created his paintings by setting out the composition and colours with a wash before applying the paint with small brushstrokes of thick paint, working methodically from one side of the canvas to the other. Complex architectural and industrial subjects like this one appealed greatly to Ginner and he made several paintings of the Leeds canals.
