Biography from VALLEJO GALLERY, LLC, Marine Art Specialists:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Samuel Phillips Jackson was an accomplished watercolorist as well as an exceptional oil painter. Born in Bristol, England, in 1830, he was a pupil of his father, also named Samuel, who was another well known artist of the period.

Elected as an associate of the British watercolor society in 1853, he toured widely and exhibited at numerous venues including the Royal Academy, the British Institution and held a remarkable total of 841 exhibitions at the Old Watercolor Society alone.

Jackson specialized in river and sea views. He enjoyed painting inshore and coastal scenes incorporating the stirring sunsets and fresh breezes found along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. From his studios in Clifton and later Henley, he created works that were very popular and sold by many of the finest galleries of his time.

Biography from Mark Murray Fine Paintings:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Samuel Phillips Jackson was born in the city of Bristol in September 1830, the son of the equally eminent watercolourist Samuel Jackson.  He was a landscape and marine painter and exhibited at both the British Institute and the Royal Academy winning the approval of John Ruskin.

Jackson was elected an associate of the Royal Watercolour Society in 1853, and after this confined himself mainly to watercolour, contributing annually to their exhibitions.

He was elected a full member in 1876.

Works by Jackson are in the collections of the City Museum and Art Gallery, Bristol and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
