Nineteenth Century New Zealand Artists: A Guide & Handbook

BEALE, George Clarendon 1856–1939

BEALE, George Clarendon 1856–1939

Born England: his family arrived in Mangonui, North Auckland 1858, then settled in Auckland in 1860. Was educated at Lysnar's School ‘The Lyceum’ and at the Church of England Grammar School. Entered the telegraph service and worked in Taranaki, Wanganui and Thames. In his later life spent much time with music and art. Sometimes the subjects of his paintings were reconstructions of historical events: his painting of the wreck of the Orpheus is a lively convincing piece of work. His autobiography Seventy Years in and around Auckland includes reproductions of his work. Exhibited with ASA 1881 as a Wanganui member. Represented in ACAG, AIML, and Turnbull.
