Brian Jones

A series of spectacular classic yacht paintings from the award-winning Cornish marine artist.

Brian Jones was born on the Kent coast in 1945.  Ships and the sea have always been the greatest influence on his life.  He is particularly inspired by the grace and beauty of classic yachts of the 1920's and 1930's.

His work mainly sells through Christie's and Sotheby's Maritime sales, and he has completed commissions for the Royal Navy and other influential private collectors, both in the UK and overseas. 

I have been influenced by some of the great marine artists both past and present including W.L.Wyllie, Norman Wilkinson and Montague Dawson, with favourite artists being Terrick Williams RA and Edward Seago.  - Brian Jones

Recently Yachting Heritage have requested the use of Brian's work in their prestigious publications.  He also regularly exhibits with the Royal Society of Marine Artist's annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London, where he won the Classic Boat prize in both in 2013 and in 2014.

Brian Jones lives and works at Looe on the South-East Cornish coast.
