The artist is listed as a member of NSA (2010). A solo show of his work, 'Silent Rhythms' was mounted by the Millennium Gallery, St Ives.
Born in London, the artist studied at the Slade, in Munich and in Paris (1910-12). He travelled widely to paint landscapes, and his painting Spring Riot, Cornwall (1940) was selected as part of the Looking West Exhibition in 1987. Though included in this representative show at Newlyn and the Royal College of Art, there is no documentation of dates when he was working in Cornwall.
His paintings Derelict Clay Pit, Cornwall and Valley of Treen show time away from his London homebase. He designed posters for British Railways (BR), as many West Country artists did. Buckman comments on his sportsmanship (skiing and climbing) and his pleasure in travelling.
Allison studied art at the Royal College of Art, and is primarily known for portraits and figure studies. An early appointment was as Headmaster of Putney School of Art.
From 1901 he served as Headmaster of the Penzance School of Art until 1907, when he departed to take up another educational post (as Principal at the Portsmouth Municipal School of Art); he also became President of the Portsmouth and Hampshire Art Society.
In June 1913 he returned to the Penzance area, acting as HM School Inspector, to render a report on the falling numbers of day students at the School. (The primary reason for the decline was the independent offering by artists of lessons from their own studios and 'schools' in the area.)
Born in Windsor, Allnutt studied at the Slade and at Bushey, and in Paris, where her sister Mabel SHONE had also attended classes in the ateliers. By 1912, Emily had arrived in St Ives and shared Rose Lodge Studio, Wharf Road with artist friend Alice Hogarth NICHOLSON.
Her first exhibition locally was on Show Day 1912 at St Ives. The two women moved on to Gerrards Cross in 1915, and Allnutt did not return to live in St Ives until 1924, moving on to nearby Carbis Bay in 1931 where she lived at Chalfont Cottage (Tovey pp 188-9) where she died in 1944. She was a founder member of STISA and also a member of the Society of Women Artists SWA.
Born in London, England, Allom was apprenticed in 1819 to the architect Francis Goodwin. He was a founder member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), and produced designs for buildings in London, which he carried out himself, as well as working with the architect Sir Charles Barry on numerous projects.
He produced many illustrations for publications of a topographical nature in the mid 1800s, including Devonshire and Cornwall Illustrated
Birmingham (Handsworth) artist recorded in Whybrow as introduced at STIAC. No further information at present.
Dutch-born British Classicist painter of great fame (OM, RA), whose wife Laura EPPS (1852-1909) was also a distinguished painter.
Her sister, Nellie EPPS (Mrs Edmund GOSSE), and her daughter Sylvia GOSSE were also painters who visited and worked in Cornwall. The family were occasional visitors to the St Ives Arts Club, and had many friends in the locale.
