Penzance: Railway Station Stanhope Alexander Forbes
Stanhope Alexander Forbes was one of the foremost figures of the Newlyn School of painters.
Newlyn is a fishing village that abuts the western end of Penzance, so Forbes would have been very familiar with the train station at Penzance. Penzance station is the end of the line and was used for the transport of Penwith products such as early season flowers as well as the comings and goings of passengers.
Forbes attended the Royal Academy between 1874 and 1878 and moved to Paris in 1880 to complete his training. He moved to Newlyn in 1884 and stayed there for the rest of his life.
