Biography  
George Oyston


Biography from the Archives of askART

A watercolor and oil painter from Cornwall, England, George Oyston traveled to various parts of England for his subject matter, which was landscapes, river scenes, and genre subjects. 

In the 1880s, he was living in his native town of North Shields, England, where he practiced as a professional artist and exhibited at the Berwick Club in Newcastle.

By 1891, he was in London, and in 1897, he moved to the region of Walton on Thames and Shepperton on Thames.  He painted many views around the River Thames in Surrey as well as other landscapes in that region and Hampshire.

Not much more is known about this artist except that he was a watercolor specialist of rural countryside subjects and also that he exhibited a picture at the New Water-Colour Society in London in 1891 and continued to exhibit there until 1897.
