AHTurner-Buckie-boatyard-wA PAINTING by a well known Kilcreggan artist was sold at auction in Salisbury, Wiltshire, on Wednesday June 13.

Entitled 'Boatyard at Buckie, Scotland', it is the work of Arthur Henry Turner who specialised in scenes relating to sailing and the sea, and it was sold by Robert Perera Fine Art of Lymington, Hampshire, at the Woolley and Wallace auction to an unknown buyer for £150.

Oil on board, it is signed by the artist on both sides and is 39.5 x 49 cms.

Arthur Turner, who was born in England in 1901, was a successful Glasgow shipbroker who moved to Aidengrove, Argyll Road, Kilcreggan, in 1929. Surrounded by ships in his working day, he was happy to relax in his peninsula home with paintbrush or pencil and to surround himself with pictures of boats.

He built himself a studio in his house in Kilcreggan which looked out over the pier and the Firth of Clyde, and, in his later years, he was able to indulge his passion for painting ships and the ever changing moods of sea and sky. He died in 1970 at the age of 70.
