Julius Olsson - Gulls at Low Water, Carbis Bay, Cornwall

Julius Olsson (Islington, London, 1864 - Dalkey, Ireland, 1942) was a British painter, the son of a Swedish father and an English mother. He was entirely self-taught and developed a lively impressionist style that owed little to the conventions of maritime painting. With his favoured palette of vivid pinks and blues, he often depicts the Cornish coast at its most luminous and exhilarating. He died of cardiac failure at St Heliers, Dalkey, County Dublin in Ireland while on a visit to his sister-in-law's home.
