Framed Pastel by Garstin Cox (1892-1933) is a charming vertical pastoral composition with an inviting path through an old-growth forest, with just the hint of cottages in the distance.  The pastels used are a challenging medium, but when done well produce amazing effect.  This work survives in its original frame and glass covering to protect the surface of the work.
Cox began his studies at Camborne Art School in England, then briefly studied with Stanhope Forbes and in St Ives with John Noble Barlow. He and his father William worked in a studio in St Ives near Camborne. His first painting at the Royal Academy was The Coming of Spring in 1912 (at the early age of 19), and he also exhibited at the Royal West of England Academy and Guildhall, London. Later he worked from the Atlantic Studio, and his works remain exhibited across Europe including the fine art collection of the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro.
Circa early 1900s
