Arthur Joseph Meadows (1843 – 1907) was a British painter of coastal scenes and marines who was greatly influenced by Clarkson Frederick Stanfield. Arthur Joseph is generally considered to be the best of the Meadows family of marine artists, he was the younger brother of James Edwin Meadows Jnr. and the son of James Meadows Snr.

His work compares favourably with most of the major nineteenth century maritime painters producing seas, which look as if they might be subject to all the vagaries of the tidal forces. He had the ability to convey the depth and immensity of the ocean. His shoreline scenes with beached boats lying close to the water’s edge, while fishermen unload their catch, were also very effectively executed.

Meadows was a prolific artist, producing many paintings, drawings and etchings throughout his career. His work is characterized by its attention to detail and his ability to capture the beauty of the natural world. He was particularly known for his paintings of the sea and coast, often depicting ships and boats in rough seas.

His work was well-received during his lifetime and he was a member of several art societies, including the Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and at other major exhibitions in London, including the Grosvenor Gallery and the New Gallery.

Meadows painted harbours and coastal scenes in England, France and Holland.
