Siwash Rock, Vancouver B.C. Painting by R. H. Taylor


This painting, signed by the artist,  belongs to my grandmother who lived in Vancouver for many years. Does anyone know more about the artist?

    Hi Joe, the artist is Reginald Henry Taylor. Mr. Taylor was one of the original Stanley Park Artists. Mr. Taylor owner framing shops in the Vancouver area. On weekends he and his wife, Edith, would sit in Stanley Park and paint these for locals and tourists, selling them for a dollar or three, depending on the size. Mr. Taylor died in 1946, his wife in the early 1960's. No great value, most sell for 20 to 100 at local auctions. Hope that helps. Gary

    1. Thank you for the information. I found one of his paintings of English Bay in some of the things from my mother.
