Beatrice Leaf HART

1872—

Beatrice Leaf Hart (not Louise as catalogued for the sale of the below work) was born at The Lizard in 1872, another of the artistic children of Thomas HART. Her only known work is a view of Housel Bay, The Lizard dated 1883 and inscribed 'Age 11 years' formerly in the collection of Ron Manuell and sold at David Lay's Auctions in April 2011. This work shows a great deal of  competency for one so young and it would be surprising, given her family background, if she did not execute further works. Information on such works would be welcomed. She married in the Helston RD in 1893 but no further information is known of her life.

 

Claude Montague HART

1869—1952

One of seven children of artist Thomas HART who also became artists in their own right, the others being Herbert Passingham HART, Horace Percival HART, Marie Louise HART, Ruby Irene HART, Sydney Ernest HART and Tracey Douglas Dyke HART. He was born at The Lizard in 1869

'Monty' studied painting in Antwerp but returned to the Lizard in Cornwall which provided the subjects for many of his seascapes. Many paintings were sold locally to visitors, but by 1940s demand had dropped and he ceased painting. He was deeply involved with the Lifeboat Service, and for thirty-nine years was Secretary for the local Lizard rescue boat. Apart from his time in Antwerp c 1891 he lived in the family home, Polbrean at The Lizard all his life and died there in 1952 aged 83.

His early works were usually signed Claude M Hart, whereas later he reverted to just C M Hart.

 

Herbert Passingham HART

1863—1901

The first of twelve children of artist Thomas HART, born at Falmouth in 1863, and one of seven children to also become artists. He married in 1892, probably to Jessica Silvia Pockett at St Giles, London. Little is known of his artistic career. He died at Falmouth in 1901 at the age of 37.

 

Horace Percival HART

1864—1896

A son of Thomas HART and one of twelve children who also became an artist, HP was born at Falmouth in 1864, Cornwall, .

In 1889 Horace HART, Sydney Ernest HART and their father, Thomas HART, exhibited drawings and pencil sketches in a joint exhibition at Ipswich, Suffolk. This was important enough as an occasion to be reported locally in The Cornishman.

He married Isabella Preston at Edmonton, Middlesex in 1890 and by 1891 they were living at Newport, Monmouthshire with HP recorded as an Artist Painter. In that year a Percival Hart exhibited one watercolour from 5 Crindan Road, Newport. There is also a watercolour by Percival Hart in Newport Art Gallery. He painted views of Cornwall and the London Docks in the 1890s.

He died in the Helston district in 1896 aged 31.

 

J J HART

Noted in the Show Day of 1923 report by the St Ives Times as being a pupil of John A PARK.

Jennifer HART

Jenny returned to Cornwall in 1983 after being more than ten years away, and found her re-entry very inspiring to her etching and printmaking. She has remained permanently since and lives in Gulval near Penzance, where she works from her home studio.  For some years until its closure she showed frequently at the Small Print Works in Bread Street, Penzance, and at a wide variety of art fairs and galleries.

Marie Louise HART

1866—

The third of twelve children of artist Thomas HART, and one of seven children to also become artists although she did not take it up professionally as did five of her brothers. Marie Louise was born in 1866 at the Hart family home at Polbrean on the Lizard. She is recorded there as a scholar in 1881 but by 1891 she had probably moved to London as there is a possible record of a marriage for her at St Pancras in 1891. After that nothing further is known of her life.
