Joseph Thors


Artist:Joseph Thors
Title:Homeward Bound
Medium: Oil on Canvas 26" x 32"

BRITISH (1835-1884)

Joseph Thors was born in England on or around 1835.  He was a painter of landscapes, animals and water scenes.

While he lived in London, he worked primarily in the Midlands, and was regarded as a member of the Birmingham School.

Thors exhibited extensively throughout his career at the Royal Academy (1863 - 1878) as well as at the British Institute and the Royal Society of British Artists and Suffolk Street.  He also exhibited in Birmingham from 1869 until his death.

His intimate landscapes usually depict quiet rustic scenes with cottages, figures and animals, painted in a style which derives from the Norwich School.

While Thors usually painted on a small scale, when one of his larger canvases becomes available, they are highly sought after as he is indeed the vanguard of English Landscape Painting during the Victorian period.

He died in 1884.
