Originally from Sheffield, a descendent suggests that Matthewman may have moved to Cornwall in the 1920s. In 1937 he exhibited two paintings, Cornish Cliffs and A Quaint Corner at NAG. The following year, a painting of his was hung at the RA, from a sending-in address of 'Maryville' at Treen, Porthcurno.
A painting by Matthewman of a young woman outside a cottage and its garden - Feeding the Pigeons - was offered by Sothebys for sale in 2002.
