Arts Everyday Living: Enchanted Gardens—A Jewel by the Sea and a Castle Hideaway

Thomas Edwin Mostyn, Garden Terrace, n.d., oil on canvas, Private Collection

 

I was unable to discover much information on British artist Thomas Edwin Mostyn (1864-1930).  His style varied considerably from the rich, painterly multi-colored palette of the two paintings portraying dream-like gardens (possibly done in the 1920s) directly above and below, to an early work of art Unsolved, created about 1903 characterized by darker tones with an emphasis on contrasting light and shallow.
