Composition: Still life with Laurel, Sphinx, Book, Shell and Vase by Joseph [Jossie] Greenup


Robert Catterson-Smith (b.1853), Headmaster of the Birmingham School of Art 1901-1921, collected this student's work as being typical of the range and quality of work expected from a young Art-Pupil Teacher. Joseph Greenup began his four-year course in 1904, aged twelve and gained his initial teaching qualification, a drawing certificate at 16 years old. The composition is of a laurel twig, bust of sphinx, an open book, a shell and a vase placed on a table. The work was accepted for the Art Class Teachers certificate and awarded the first prize in the school competition. It is a Stage 5a work for the National Course of Instruction - shading from the round from solid models and objects.
