1858 - 1940
Four early prints entitled ‘Poetry of Motoring’ in common frame with motoring situations with Shakespearean quotes. Interesting that four of his prints were shown at the motoring art exhibition at the Paris Motor Show 1905. Edmund George Fuller began to paint in St. Ives around 1890 at the beginning of its artistic fame working from studios in Barnoon and Porthmeor. Having joined the St. Ives Art Club he duly exhibited 23 works at the Royal Academy and 17 works at the Royal Society of British Artists. He was a jovial character who designed the St Ives memorial to the fellow artists who died during the Great War. It would seem that some of his paintings were published as postcards by Raphael Tuck.
