Artist Gallery | Thomas Edwin Mostyn [1864 – 1930] British


Born in Liverpool in 1864 and raised in Manchester, Tom Mostyn, the son of the artist Edwin Mostyn, studied at the Manchester Academy of Fine Arts. He is mainly recognized for his romantic garden scenes, although his style was so eclectic throughout his career that it is hard to believe that the same artist created all of his paintings.

Many of his earliest works were strongly influenced by the strong anti-“Victorian Materialist” sentiment of his teacher Sir Hubert Von Herkomer (whose school he entered in 1893). His most important transition took place between 1911 and 1912.  The works from this period feature figures, which are so predominant in his earlier works, in lavish garden settings – blending the two subjects he was currently exploring. Leaving realism behind, Mostyn began to paint dream-like landscapes, idealizing nature by working with, and building upon, his knowledge of nature’s strength and beauty.
