Wilfred Knox (1884-1966)
He specialised in watercolour landscapes in a Turneresque manner, frequently of Venice and sometimes of Oriental scenes. He also painted clipper ships plying the North Atlantic trade in a more exact manner.
Knox began his working life as a Policeman in Durham and a Sergeant Mechanic on Blackburn B2 bombers in the first World War. After the War he took up painting.
Much of his early work used the pseudonym A.D.Bell - and studies of flowers for the family used 'Yvonne'. He also used R.McGregor and W.McGregor.
Messrs Frost and Reed of Bristol acted as his agents, selling many of his works in the USA. He also painted many Scottish highland scenes in oils.
