George  Sheridan Knowles biography
George Sheridan Knowles was born in Manchester in 1863. He painted portraits and genre subjects in both oils and watercolours. The artist was a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and an associate of the Royal Cambrian Academy in Manchester. Between 1885 and 1893 he exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Suffolk Street Gallery and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and was awarded a jury commendation at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900.

There can be no doubt that people in the late 19th century looked back at the previous century with great interest and artists such as Knowles catered for this fascination. He captured well some of the aspects of the bygone era with sensitivity and skill. George Sheridan Knowles died in 1931.
