A friend of ours also has a painting by Kingman, will need to research further.
Keep in touch if any further news, I also am now interested in the artists.

I also have one of these paintings i purchased it from a art shop in durham city in the early 80s

I have a 24x36 painting by Kingman of a waterfall flowing into a river and surrounded by pine trees. I would like to find out who the artist is and is the painting worth anything. It is a beautiful scene and I don"t want to sell it but would like to know if I should insure it.

Thanks Jc in Texas

Default KIngman Painting

Well guys, I also have an oil painting by KINGMAN. One thread runiing through these paintings are hunting dogs. My painting, depicts an English pointer flushing (a no no) pair of bobwhite quail in a wooded scene. The signature is printed with an exagerated or flamboyant K ,a capitlised or oversized G space and small printed capital letters. I have always thought the scenery was fall (hunting season) in the South East-Central United States because Bobwhite Quail are native to this part of the United States. However, to put a fly in the ointment, I did buy the oil on Ebay, from a seller in in England. It's a puzzel! Good luck, Herb

Hi just seen this forum. Very interesting reading. I also have two oil paintings by Kingman (both are scenes of pointers flushing out game birds from woodland scene). Large pictures 36 x 24 plus frame. Would love to find out more about them. Have tried to investigate the artist, but not managed to find out much! The signature is in the bottom right hand corner. I've owned the paintings for about 8 years. Bought from a gallery in Surrey. Email : matthewsimat@aol.com.

Default Kingman oil painting

Hi there, I also have two oil paintings by Kingman (pointers flushing out birds in woodland scene). The paintings are large 36 x 24 inches plus frame. They are signed Kingman in lower right corner. Bought from gallery in Caterham, Surrey about 8 years ago. They were sold by the gallery on behalf of a private individual who was emigrating. Have tried (unsuccessfully) to find out more about them. Any information would be useful. Ann

Hello Ann and Matt
Welcome to the Kingman search, Unfortunately at this stage no one seems to have any idea who this artist is or was.
What is interesting reading throughout the posts there are several paintings, which have the pionter flushing out partridge or Qauil as one of our american friends describes as.
If you would like to compare yours to mine I will be only to pleased to send a photo (afloy@tiscali.co.uk) along with any other info you may wish to ask.
Regards
Alan Floy

Hi Wendy and Beerzo
Welcome to the art conversation board, and the search for information relating to the mystery artist KINGMAN. If you have read all the posts on this board you will find a common sense of similarity. Unfortunately no one seems to have the answer of the origin of the artist, which seems to be a mystery.
Keep in touch, if you manage to generate any information.
I am searching around many various galleries, and internet connections, but with no avail. I feel sure that the answer is there, and some thing simple like this board will come up with a connection.
If you wish to compare paintings you will find my email on previous posts.
Good luck to all
Best wishes
afloy

Smile Kingman oil painting

How exciting.. I was just trying to research an oil painting that I have of a black & white springer spaniel with a woodcock in it's mouth at the forefront of a autumnal wooded scene when I came across this conversation on the artist Kingman. I cannot be absolutely sure about the signature (bottom right of painting) but it is King.....something. The last part of the name isn't clear at all but there are no 'tall' or 'tail' letters so it could be Kingman and the style and theme of the painting seems similar to those described here. I will watch with interest to see if anyone can find out any more info on this artist.
Marion

It is 25in x 37in will email photo to anybody who would like to see it. i would like to find out who Mr or Mrs Kingman is myself....... John. johnduncan4@bigpond.com

Default A resource for dog paintings

I noticed that a few of the responders appear to be in the U.S. Is there any possibility that the mysterious Kingman could be an American?

I'm not sure if this will help you lot, but there's a gallery in NYC devoted almost exclusively to sporting dogs - The William Secord Gallery. They'd probably hate it if everyone contacted them, but perhaps member Afloy could have a go at it.

Here's their website:
http://www.dogpainting.com/index_new.cfm

(212) 249-0075. Here's what the website says about Secord:
The founding director of The Dog Museum of America, William Secord is the world authority on nineteenth century dog painting and is the first author to explore the representation of the dog from its origins to the remarkable paintings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries up to modern times. He is the author of the best-selling A Dog Painting, 1840-1940, a Social History of The Dog in Art, as well as three other books on nineteenth century dog paintings "Dog Painting, The European Breeds"; "A Breed Apart, The Art Collections of The American Kennel Club and The American Kennel Club Museum of The Dog"; and “Dog Painting, A History of The Dog in Art”...


Good Luck to you all!
