Born in Cambridge and studied art at Portsmouth and Southsea School of Art, Wilkinson is famed for his marine paintings and landscapes which take rivers as a focal point. He worked in oil, watercolour and drypoint. In 1898 he started contributing to the Illustrated London News as an illustrator and poster artist. His love of the sea led him to travel extensively principally to Spain, Italy, Malta, Greece, Canada, United States and Brazil. One of the finest marine painters of the century, his work has been represented in a wide variety of collections, galleries and other venues, among them the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, Royal Academy, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colors, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Fine Art Society, Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, Abbey Gallery, Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham, and Beaux Arts Gallery.
