In 1931 she exhibited with STISA and was noticed in reviews with praise. Tovey records that further exhibition work with STISA did not take up again until the 1950s.
Fisher was born in Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. He was a founder member of the Society of Marine Artists in 1939, exhibiting with them until his death. However he also worked frequently in Cornwall, and was a sometime member of STISA.
Fishwick was born near Accrington, Lancashire. He attended Liverpool School of Art for two years before entering the Naval service in 1942. After WWII he returned to complete his studies and acquire a teacher's diploma (1947). Though his teaching career was ever present, and he became principal of the Exeter College of Art in 1958, retiring in 1984, he always kept up an active painting and exhibition schedule. Particular friends in Cornwall were Michael CANNEY and his wife Madeleine, Jack PENDER, Paul FEILER and Alexander MACKENZIE.
From 1952 to 1983 he and his wife, Patricia FISHWICK, also an artist and a teacher of history of art, were members of the NSA. Clifford also exhibited with the Penwith Society in the 1950s and 60s. In the arts review cutting referenced in Hardie (1995, p114) foremost artists are mentioned as Patrick HERON, Paul FEILER, Peter LANYON, John TUNNARD, Dod PROCTER, Alethea GARSTIN, John WELLS, Bernard LEACH and Clifford Fishwick as all being well-represented, 'together with many youthful painters of promise working in the area.'
The artist-couple lived in Topsham, Devon, nr Exeter, where they both taught.
Patricia was born in Liverpool, and she studied there at the College of Art before attending the Exeter College of Art (1949-52) where she met her future husband, Clifford FISHWICK who was her teacher. Her own teaching subject was in the history of art at Exeter College from 1972-84.
Though the couple did not ever live in Cornwall, they were both members of the NSA (1952-83), and sent in work to the NAG shows regularly. Their home was in Topsham, Devon.
Born in New York City, the son of a map engraver, he decided early in life to become an artist.
Fisk studied in 1904 at the Art Students League, and in 1909 took life classes at the National Academy of Design, and then studied under Robert Henri at his studio, where he became a close friend of Stuart Davis.
From 1912 he studied in Paris under the Fauvist painters Pierre Laprade and Othon Friesz. There he attended the salons hosted by Leo and Gertrude Stein, making friends with many Americans abroad, and others from many countries, and attended exhibitions of work by the modernists Picasso and Matisse.
Back in the USA, he mixed with those progressive and avante garde artists who frequented Greenwich Village. He married Lucy Spalding Young, and in 1933-34, on a year’s sabbatical from his University post, he studied in England, where he John Rothenstein in Sheffield, toured Cornwall, and researched into techniques in etching in London. Some results of this experience are the titles Harbour in Penzance Cornwall (mezzotint 1935) and Penzance, Cornwall (mezzotint 1935).
A painter of coastal and marine subjects, Whybrow notices this artist in St Ives during the first decade of the 20th century. His addresses were in Cheltenham and Boscombe, Hampshire, and he appears to have travelled in Norway.
In 1897 he exhibited in Birmingham (Wood) and many other shows followed, most frequently at RI and ROI.
David Tovey, the historian of the St Ives Arts colonies, writes (2011): Fitzgerald was said to be living in Cheltenham, when he was signed in as a guest at the Arts Club by the Hobkirk brothers in February and November 1896. Accordingly, he may well have been studying art with Stuart Hobkirk in Cheltenham before deciding, on Hobkirk’s recommendation, to try the newly formed Olsson School. Certainly, he became a marine painter, in both oils and watercolours, and, by 1897, when he first exhibited his work, he was based in Boscombe, Hampshire, which was to be his home for the rest of his career.
He travelled widely and is probably best known for his depictions of the Norwegian coast. However, he also returned to West Penwith from time to time. He was a visitor at Mrs Griggs, Zennor, in November 1913, making a sketch in her Visitors' book, and Whybrow records him as a member of the Arts Club at about this time. A watercolour Silvery Morning, St Ives has appeared on the market, whilst another watercolour of Clodgy Point is dated 1927. Two of his oils, including a pure seascape entitled A Seaway, are owned by the Russell-Cotes Gallery, Bournemouth.
This may be Dorothy Fitzherbert, an artist with an address in Kingswear, South Devon who exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool in 1911, as noticed by J&G. She was also an exhibitor at NAG with the NSA in March 1908, and in the autumn exhibition of 1909.
A New Zealand artist who lived at St Ives, he was known for his clever sketches and caricatures and remarkable comic eye. His book Caricatures from the Cornish Riviera (1910) was of local people and artists.
He published two books from his studio in St Ives, and contributed to Punch. He participated in the Show Days at St Ives in 1911, 1912 and 1913, with both caricatures and paintings, one title being Moorland. His addresses for exhibition were given as Carbis Bay, Cornwall (1912) and Exmouth, Devon (1921).
