DAVID APPLEYARD - OCTOBER 2016

OVERVIEW

This home page gives a brief overview of the sites we have posted about my late father, Joseph Appleyard.

Joe, a prolific artist from the mid 1930's until his untimely death in 1960, kept extensive records, which along with examples provided by many of our visitors and those found on Auction House Sites, has enabled us to showcase over 400 of Joe's paintings.

These sites contain photographs, published works, sketches, drawings, book illustrations and newspaper articles. We hope our ongoing research will provide continued pleasure to those of you who choose to explore further and will eventually lead to a major exhibition of Joe's work.

Joe's work was brought to a wider audience in 2006 with the publication of a short Biography in, "DOWN YOUR WAY", a monthly magazine taking a nostalgic look at Yorkshire.

Joseph Appleyard's Art Gallery Sites

JANUARY 2016 SAW US REACH A MAJOR MILESTONE WHEN WE POSTED IMAGE No. 444
AN INCREASE OF OVER 200 IMAGES SINCE THE WEB SITE WAS POSTED IN 1999

OUR SINCEREST THANKS TO ALL OUR CONTRIBUTERS

Much of Joe's work was published in "Holly Leaves", the Christmas Edition of "Sport and Country", "The Dalesman Magazine" and commercially reproduced as prints, greetings cards, jigsaws, toffee tins and menu cards, many of which can be viewed in Joe's Art Galleries below.

Joe's paintings are far flung. One of his earliest paintings, that of Adel Church, Leeds, known to be in South Africa in the early nineties, was rediscovered in his home county of Yorkshire and only fifteen miles from Adel. Another eight images (282 - 289) were "flown in" from an American Collector who used to work in Yorkshire.

We apologise for the poor quality of many of the images, which certainly do not do justice to Joe's outstanding talent, an issue we hope to address in the coming months.

Riding through the Ridings

This site contains Joe's full transcript and most of the illustrations for his unpublished book "Riding through the Ridings", a Coach Journey from Doncaster to Darlington along the Great North Road, which was to have been published in 1947.

Quite why it never got published is unclear, possibly the pressure of family life?

Other Joseph Appleyard Sites

These sites give a more detailed insight into Joe's life through his manuscripts, newspaper articles, personal recollections and hopefully other sources yet to be discovered. Since these sites were posted in April 2002, we have managed to obtain information and illustrations from quite a number of sources and are constantly on the lookout for more work through the Net, Private Collectors, Auction Houses and both Private and Public Art Galleries.

Footnote

It is now fourteen years since these sites were posted in April 2002 and we have managed to obtain information and illustrations from many sources.

We are constantly on the lookout for more work through the Net, Private Collectors, Auction Houses and both Private and Public Art Galleries.

We are particularly indebted to the many contributers across the World who have provided both digital and photographic images.

KEEP 'EM COMING! - THANK YOU
