George Arthur FRIPP 1813 - 1896

Biography

George Arthur Fripp was an artist who specialised in watercolours, alongside his brother Alfred Downing Fripp. Born in Bristol, he also studied in Birmingham and Leamington. In 1834 he accompanied William James Muller on a sketching tour of Europe, and exhibited some of the artworks produced on this trip at the Royal Academy after 1838.

In 1841 he exhibited at the Old Watercolour Society and became a full member in 1845, and then secretary from 1848-1854. His works tended to focus upon British scenery and views, and received great approval among critics of the time. In 1864 he stayed at Balmoral in order to paint the scenery for Queen Victoria, who admired his work.
