William BOASE SMITH

William J BOASE SMITH
1842
1896

Boase Smith lived in Falmouth and was a member and judge for the exhibitions held annually by the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society.

Again in 1895, the Society felt "under obligation to Newlyn and St Ives" for their important contributions: thereafter they continued to contribute regularly. By that date J Philp (James George PHILP) had died, as recently had Boase Smith [sic: perhaps he was ill at that stage]: another constant contributor to the exhibition for over 30 years and a "conscientious judge of Amateur pictures".

A recent correspondent (2013) has written to say that a watercolour painting by this artist has been in his family for 80-100 years and that the subject is Helford Village.
