Dutch painter of landscapes and florals, many in modern photo-realistic style, from Amsterdam staying at 14 Ayr Terrace (Feb 1915) with his wife.
In section 3.6 'The brief but productive visit of Dirk Smorenberg' in Sea Change (2010) Tovey adds significantly to our sparse knowledge of the artist's year-long visit to St Ives from 1915-16.
