George Cockram was born on 9th March 1861 at Birkenhead, Liverpool and was the son of a coach maker. He was educated in Liverpool and studied at the Liverpool Institute of Fine Arts from 1884, and then in Paris from 1889. He dedicated himself to painting entirely in watercolours and was particularly inspired by the sweeping countryside of Wales. He is known primarily for his wonderful landscapes and coastal scenes, although in his later years he also painted Venetian subjects.

George Cockram was a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy from 1886, the Royal Institute from 1913 and the Manchester Academy from 1922. He exhibited widely and had a picture shown in the Royal Academy at the age of just 18. In addition to many further exhibitions at the Royal Academy he also exhibited at Suffolk Street, the New Water Colour Society, the London Salon, the Manchester City Art Gallery and the Royal Society of British Artists. He has works in permanent collections at Hull, Birkenhead, Oldham and the Portsmouth City Museum. Principal works include The Silent Sea, held by the Christchurch Gallery, New Zealand, The Lonely Shore held by the Walker Gallery, Liverpool, and Solitude, held by the Tate following purchase by Chantry Bequest .

He died at the age of 89 in Rhosneigr, Anglesey.

The painting offered here is typical of some of the best work of Cockram, being a majestically serene scene of large proportion.
