Tayler was actively involved in the Newlyn school

Famed for his portraiture, Albert Chevallier Tayler is best known for his involvement with the Newlyn school of painting, which was based in Newlyn, Cornwall and inspired by the "en plein air" method made popular by the French impressionists.

Archibald Thorburn's (1860-1935) Cock and Hen Pheasant in a Woodland Clearing also sold with strong results, bringing £63,650 ($100,798) against a £50,000 top estimate.
