A landscape painter, Thomas Maidment was born in London and studied at the Royal College of Art. In the early 1900s he moved to Cornwall where like many others he was inspired by the scenery. He lived for periods in Newlyn, St Ives and Helston. He often painted street scenes in the Cornish fishing villages. His paintings are characterised by rich, bold colours and the use of black ink outlines and detail.
