'THE JUBILEE HAT (1887) | Frank Wright Bourdillon: oil on canvas. 'In May , Bourdillon moved to Cornwall, living first at Polperro and arriving in Newlyn early in 1887. In Newlyn, Bourdillon continued to paint pictures aimed at the Royal Academy, meeting with only occasional success. Influenced by the Newlyn ethos, he painted a few interior social realist genre scenes using the square brush technique, of which "The Jubilee Hat" is perhaps the best example.' ✫ღ⊰n
