John Falconar Slater

Victorian Artist

John Falconar Slater (1857-1937), a British artist, was born at Rye Hill, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in 1857 and lived for many years in the village of Cullercoats in Northumbria. He was a landscape, seascape and portrait painter with a distinct dynamic impressionist style. He was particularly good at depicting wild water and often painted the North Sea on the shores of which he lived. Before becoming an artist John Falconar Slater worked as a book-keeper for his father, Thomas, in his corn mill and later lived in South Africa for a period where he ran a store in the diamond fields. Once established as an artist he practiced in the region of his homeland, Northumbria. In 1889 one of his pictures was accepted by the Royal Academy and later he was recognised by the Royal Scottish Academy. He continued to exhibit locally throughout his career. Exhibited: Royal Academy, 22 L,5 M,1
