A Tarlington - artist

Di.Poppitt

I've got six framed prints of watercolours by A Tarlington, they were being sold in the Library shop about 20 years go. He painted lots of local scenes, the originals are held by the Library, none of my prints are of The Beehive Taven but I don't know how many of the originals they hold.

These paintings by A Tarlington were the subject of a 1984 calendar entitled “Victorian Birmingham”. There were 6 images of various Birmingham street scenes. Could we match up the places for A, B, C & D please ? Then I shall edit this post. Thanks. Viv.

Magnificent prints. There are others and some details of Tarlington's work in this thread.

Thanks Alan. I’ve copied a couple of the posts to this thread as they mention a number of Birmingham paintings by the artist. Viv.

No mention of Star Clothing, but at that time it would normally be listed under the name of the owner. In fact nos 5 & 6 were Frederick Phillip Levi, tailor, and no 1 was William Henry Warner, butcher, which fits , while no 2 was William Coolin, secondhand bookseller, which could fit the look of the window
