Algernon Mayow Talmage R.A., R.O.I., R.W.A., A.R.E. 1871-1939
Talmage studied at the Herkomer School and in St. Ives, staying on in the town to assist Julius Olsson at his painting school.
He went on to exhibit internationally, winning medals in America and in Paris and he was elected a full Royal Academician in 1929.
Like many of his St. Ives colleagues he favoured moonlit subjects painted in a restrained impressionist manner intending to convey atmosphere and mood.
