George WOLFE

1834—1890

Wolfe was born in Bristol, where he was raised by an adoptive mother, Mrs Buckley of Windsor Terrace, Clifton.

Later he settled in Hampshire.

Garnet Ruskin WOLSELEY

1884—1967

Garnet Wolseley first sold a painting, Rough Seas, at Newlyn Art Gallery in 1908 and in 1909 he exhibited A Fairy Story and A Silver Sea. He served on the main committee of the Newlyn Society of Artists, and the hanging committee of the Gallery from 1911 to 1913, when Charles Walter SIMPSON undertook to replace him on the Management Committee.

Penlee House has his painting of St Michael's Mount (oil on canvas), gifted by the Friends and the Simon Levy Charitable Trust in 2001. Wolseley features in back profile with Laura KNIGHT and Florence CARTER-WOOD, modelling as a butler in the painting by Harold KNIGHT, Afternoon Tea (1910). The setting was Wolseley's drawing room in Newlyn. Laura Knight describes him taking part in wild but sparse attire at one of Phyllis Maureen GOTCH's extravagant parties. He worked from Sandy-Cove Studio, Newlyn, often painting in the Lamorna Valley nearby, until 1913.

Roger WONNACOTT

1964—

Roger Wonnacott was born in Okehampton but lives in west Cornwall. He has family roots in the Carharrick area, where his great-grandfather was a miner. Self-taught, he works mainly in acrylics. A fascination for the Cornish coast informs his subject matter, which includes boats and ships, often battered and rusty from years on the open sea.

Thomas R WONNACOTT

1835—

The 1891 Census lists him as being born in Plympton, Devon, and living at Wood House Terrace, Falmouth with his wife Sarah. He was both an architect and an artist-painter.

A M WOOD

NAG exhibitor.

Alan WOOD

1935—

A painting by this artist, Ribbon Painting (1967) is part of the permanent collection of Cornwall Council.

Christopher WOOD

1901—1930

 Recognised as a West Country 'connection' due to his discovery with Ben NICHOLSON of the naïve artist Alfred WALLIS of St Ives in 1928.  Wood was a multi-talented painter of the sea, ships, and dockside life.

In 1926 he met Winifred and Ben Nicholson and in their close friendship worked with them from time to time in Cumbria and in St Ives. First studying architecture at Liverpool, Kit soon turned to painting and studied at the Parisian ateliers of Julian's and Grande Chaumiere, where he was much influenced by modern European art movements (especially Picasso and Cocteau and their circles).

His visits to Cornwall were three in number in the years 1926, 1928 and 1930, in between travels in France, mainly Paris, northern France, and in and around Douarnenez, the capital of Cornouaille (the other Cornwall, a district within Finistere, Brittany). His strong and colourful palette led him with his unique naïve style latterly toward surrealism. He died (by suicide) at Salisbury station on 21 August, 1930 at the age of 29, killed by a train.

Francis G WOOD

Headmaster of Penzance School of Art, taking over from William Henry KNIGHT in 1916. For four years he built it up successfully and was highly respected for being one of the 'best art teachers in the west of England'.  Wood resigned in 1920, perhaps fearing the loss of the school's local independence, and was replaced by James W LIAS. In that year he prepared plans for the Lelant War Memorial.
