William Crampton Gore RHA (Interiors, Still Lifes, Landscapes) (1871-1946)

Born in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, William Gore trained in medicine at Trinity College Dublin, practicing as a doctor until 1900, although he took several months leave in 1898 to study fine art painting under the renowned Henry Tonks at the Slade School in London.  After a short posting as a ship's surgeon, he returned to the Slade School (1900-1904) to further his studies in drawing and painting, becoming friends with William Orpen and also Augustus John, with whom he shared a studio. He also spent time painting in Paris.

In 1905, he began showing at the Royal Hibernian Academy, submitting more than 100 paintings up until 1939.  In 1916, he was elected an Associate Academician, and two years later he was elected a full member.  He also exhibited with the Water Colour Society of Ireland.

His focus was principally interiors and still-lifes, in oils.  He was particularly interested in flowerpieces, and was instrumental in persuading the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland to hold an exhibition of Flower and Garden Paintings at the Metropolitan School of Art in the 1940s.

A keen traveler, he spent a year (1922-3) touring China and Japan, and also painted in Spain. Following his marriage in 1923, he settled in the South of France, where he was often visited by Dermod O'Brien PRHA, to whom he was related.  In 1932, he moved to Colchester, Essex, where he remained until his death in 1946.

He was represented in numerous exhibitions of Irish art, including the celebrated Exhibition of Irish Artists in Brussels (1930). Examples of William Crampton Gore's work can be seen in the Limerick City Gallery of Art and the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin.
