Heather SUTCLIFFE

1868—1936

Heather Sutcliffe was to meet her future husband, Charles H THOMPSON, when she studied at the Herkomer School. The story of their courtship and marriage is to be found in his entry in this data-base, as provided by Viv Hendra, author and gallery owner (2011).

She continued to paint throughout their marriage under the name of Heather Thompson, though nothing is known as yet about her work except that she was noted for her miniatures. She exhibited at NAG (1924).

Her sending-in address in 1903 was St Buryan, and in 1906 at Limnerslease, nr Guildford, where she managed the pottery while he acted as curator. They continued their association with Newlyn into the 1920s, when both exhibited again at NAG, having done so earlier before Charles's appointment in Surrey which kept them away for ten years. The return to West Cornwall was permanent, and they leased a home, Chyvarrian, where they remained until her death.

St Ives exhibitor.

Lester SUTCLIFFE

1848—1933

Sutcliffe was born in Heptonstall, nr Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire on 26 March, 1848.  He was first discovered (by us) when he exhibited with the Cornish artists in the Dowdeswell show of 1890. He had been resident in Newlyn prior to that exhibition, as a letter from Forbes, describes a  visit to his lodgings in Newlyn on 20 Oct 1887. He also exhibited with the Newlyn artists in the Meadow Studios, though had left Newlyn well before the advent of NAG.

Sutcliffe married the artist Elizabeth TREVOR (sister of the late Edward TREVOR) in 1891 in Wales, and the two were considered distinguished artists of their region, in which they lived and worked for the remainder of their lives. Sutcliffe died in Leeds on 17 December, 1933, age 84 (GRO).

Tony SUTCLIFFE

Tony Sutcliffe moved to Carbis Bay in Cornwall in 2001. His non-figurative paintings express the 'enigmatic pagan landscape' of Penwith.

Elizabeth SUTCLIFFE

1854—1944

The wife of Lester SUTCLIFFE, Elizabeth was also the sister of the artist Edward TREVOR.  Bednar comments: 'Although three sources state that Lester Sutcliffe was living in Newlyn in 1887, I could find no evidence of a visit to Newlyn by Elizabeth Trevor.  They married in 1891, in Wales.'  It is nonetheless clear that her brother Edward had been to Newlyn earlier (unless this was another artist of the same name.)

A letter written by Stanhope FORBES and postmarked 20th October 1887 noted 'We were all of us round at Sutcliffe's last night.' Also, Iris Green notes that the couple lived for a brief period after their marriage in a cottage called 'The Bridge' in the centre of Newlyn village.  

Graham SUTHERLAND

In June 1942 he arrived in West Penwith, sketching miners and underground workings of Geevor for the War Artists Advisory Committee. Between then and December, he regularly divided his time between Cornwall and his home in Trottiscliffe, Kent.
