Warwickshire Railways: Railway Art

We have long admired the skill of artists who can capture the atmosphere of railways and translate it on to canvas. Whilst photographers can capture the moment, and thereby record actual events, artists can capture much more which is why paintings are so often described as being evocative but photographs rarely so. We would also like to express our thanks to the artists listed below for kindly granting permission for their work to be shown on the website. As we are sure you will agree, their work adds another dimension to our ability to remember moments from the past. The roll call of artists seen below is divided into two sections; members or past members of the Guild of Railway Artists who are professional artists and others, predominantly enthusiastic and competent amateurs.

We highly recommend a visit to the Guild of Railway Artists' own website which illustrates some of the work of nearly fifty artists as well as listing exhibitions and publications. For further information about the Guild of Railway Artists and its exhibitions please view the Guild’s web site at www.railart.co.uk .

We have limited the paintings on show to those which portray scenes from the county's railways. In many instances the artists listed have substantial collections of other railway scenes but of themes focused outside of Warwickshire.
