Edmund George Fuller (1858-1940) was an English seascape and landscape painter, metalworker and graphic artist. In 1892 he and his wife Clara relocated to St Ives in Cornwall, a move which was to have a fundamental impact on his art. Fuller became a prominent member of the St Ives artistic scene – a celebrated member of the St Ives Arts Club, and later, in 1927, the break-away St Ives Society of Artists. Fuller was captivated by the Cornish coastal light and the power of the sea, and he explored the effects of weather, tide and surf in his watercolour and oil landscapes. He was a progressive painter who at times used an impressionist palette and techniques.
He exhibited locally and in London, at the Royal Academy and at the Royal Society of British Artists, of which he was elected a member. In 1897 he staged a solo exhibition at his Porthmeor studio in St Ives, where he showed 120 paintings. In 1923 he was a founder member of the New Print Society formed in St Ives.Though chiefly a painter, he was also a skilled copper worker and draughtsman, designing the 10,000-book library at Boskerris Vean, then home of the writer Greville Matheson in Carbis Bay.Two Fuller oil paintings are now in the collection of Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery.
