CHARLES OPPENHEIMER, RSA RSW (1875-1961) SUNSHINE AFTER SNOW signed oil on canvas 74cm x 95cm In 1908 Oppenheimer moved to 14 High Street, Kirkcudbright, rented from E A Hornel, then to Woodlea, Kirkcudbright, purchased in 1938. Education: Manchester School of Art; Italy Professional Bodies: ARSA, 1927; RSA, 1934; RSW, 1912 Exhibited At: Royal Academy; Royal Scottish Academy; RSW; Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts; Aberdeen Artists' Society; Liverpool Associates: W S MacGeorge; friendly with Dorothy L Sayers and Mac Fleming when they lived next door at 14a High Street, rented from Hornel. Helped to found the Dumfries and Galloway Fine Art Society. Notes : Born in Manchester, Oppenheimer studied under Walter Crane at Manchester School of Art and in Italy. He settled in Kirkcudbright and for 52 years painted views of the landscape in Kirkcudbright and the local area. He is said to have commented, “The Highlands are too sensational. Fine to visit. Fine to climb. But not adaptable enough for painting.” He was a keen fisherman and many of his paintings dealt with rivers and the effect of light on water: he was also a exceptional painter of snow and an acute observer of weather conditions. He painted both oils and watercolours in a fresh, direct and realistic manner and his popularity is due to his great sensitivity to landscape and light. He retained a love of Italy and produced some excellent canvases of Florence and Venice. Numerous works in Public, Corporate and private collections.
