Pile Albert  F.R.S.A., S.G.A.

Res. 1968 (1882 -1981)Albert Pile was a prolific artist who was born in London but on retirement came to live in Yorkshire where he spent many years in Whitby. He spent much time drawing the town and its surrounding areas. Although he painted and sketched purely for his own pleasure his works were exhibited in London and Paris. During the Second World War he was a Commisioned War Artists in London.  Albert was keen to record change and therefore spent much time locally, sketching in Whitby, recording parts of the old town before they were knocked down. His work is much sought after and could be an investment. Since his death his work has been sold at auction at Christies (London) in three catalogue sales.

 Artist in Leeds.  Also sometimes signs paintings Ronald S (Sheard) Pawson.  

He died in the mid 70s from a heart attack aged 62. 

 'I spoke to his son Roger  who said he was a very well thought of, professional artist in Yorkshire and his paintings fetch very reasonable prices.

 I noticed that your web site was asking for images of past members work and so I am attaching a photograph of our picture which is painted on board and inscribed on the back "Landscape in snow, North Yorkshire.  Ronald Pawson, 50 Delph Lane, Leeds 6, Yorkshire.  It also has a number "8" on a label which I believe is an auction number.'  (Supplied by Mr J. Pratchett December 2009)

Burton Jack

Died. .2004Jack Burton’s name is synonymous with Bridlington Art Society. He was one of the founder members in 1948 and devoted time and energy to ensure the Societies successful continuity. Jack was instrumental in getting Harry Hudson Rodwell the noted Royal Society of Marine Artists, as it’s first President. He was secretary for some years and became treasurer for twelve years. He was rewarded for his efforts by being elected as a Vice President and Honorary life member some years ago. Jack will be remembered too for his contribution by his own accomplishments shown in the many paintings he produced. In the early years, he mainly painted in oils exhibiting local scenes with atmospheric treatment and many ‘still life’ works with expert handling of paint. Jack painted outdoors on the Yorkshire coast from Staithes down to Spurn Point. Yet when he ventured abroad he painted and brought back delightful scenes from the continent. In his late years, he turned quite remarkably to watercolour and his forte was depiction of crowded beach scenes of Bridlington, Scarborough and Filey. These paintings were soon sought after. They had the interest and quality about them of L.S.Lowry. As a person he was highly respected- he would encourage and give constructive advice to fellow painters. He was always referred to as the perfect man. The group will long remember him and he will live on in his paintings.
