As there is currently a watercolour work on sale in the Shop by the English artist Arthur Dudley signed and dated 1901, it is appropriate that an entry should be made about this artist. It is generally accepted that he also painted under the pseudonym Giovanni Barbaro and his works were generally still-life studies of fruit and Egyptian desert or town scenes. His most prolific period was 1890-1907 and he exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Artists. He is known to have lived in London and Bath.
I hope to be able to add further biographical details about this artist and will be very interested to receive any further information about Arthur Dudley/Giovanni Barbaro.
