Together with her partner Paul CLARK, Liz Hackney is an artist who runs Atishoo Designs, a contemporary arts and crafts gallery in the port of Charlestown in Cornwall.
Born on 22 August 1864, Barnet, Greater London (GRO), he studied art at the Slade School under Legros from 1883 on a three year scholarship, and was exhibiting Newlyn titles at the RBA at the end of that period (1885-86), demonstrating that he had spent time in Cornwall within his coursework. At the Slade he not only won a Landscape prize, but also a medal for Painting from Life. He worked in Spain for a year (1886-87), and then returned to London to work with Herkomer at Bushey. From 1896 through 1897 he painted in Rome.
Haddon travelled far and wide, painting, and writing travel books including The Old Venetian Palaces and Southern Spain. In England he lived at Cambridge in his later years and died there on 13 December, 1941, age 77 (GRO).
David Haddon was a painter from Birmingham who exhibited at the Royal Society of Artists in Birmingham and the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
The artist was Middlesex-born, married to Elizabeth (1866), and lived in Wanstead, Essex (1871, 1881). He exhibited West Side, St Michael's Bay, Cornwall at the RA in 1882.
He disappears from artist's lists thereafter, and his wife is shown to have become a governess to a nearby leather merchant's family (1891). A person of the same name of Wilberforce Haddon, with the same birth year, is registered as dying in South Stoneham, Hampshire in 1893.
A native New Yorker, Ann lived for four years in West Cornwall near Coverack in the 1990s, before moving to London and then to France where she settled near Toulouse until 2007. Following this sojourn in European travels and exhibiting, she has now re-settled in New York City. In each location she exhibited her work, and in Cornwall this was at the Jamieson Library (1997) and in the Hypatia Showcase (2000), both venues in the Penzance area. Her style is modern, abstract, and often incorporates writing. Ann is also a poet.
In the USA she has exhibited in both New York, and in the Art showcase, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
This artist may be Frank Haigh of Hyde Park, London, and Shepton Mallett, Somerset, who exhibited in London and Liverpool between 1901-08 (J&G), but this is only a stab in the dark. Tovey also finds an art student-cricket player of this name on the St Ives team in 1901, who also takes part in the St Ives Dramatic Society's activities that same year.
He is known to have exhibited at the Royal Cambrian Society.
Born in Hastings, the son of a doctor, Fred Hale studied painting in Paris (1873-5) under Cabanel and Carolus Duran. Working for the Illustrated London News, he was a war artist covering from the Russian side, the progress of the Russo-Turkish war. Following that assignment he travelled around Britain painting landscapes, classical and mythological subjects, not unlike those of ALMA-TADEMA in style. At some point (though known in no detail) he painted watery scenes in Cornwall. Otherwise his paintings seem to reveal war scenes and military life.
He settled in London and then from 1897 in Godalming, Surrey, exhibiting mainly with the ROI after WWI.
