Born in Streatham, London Bax married a Cornish girl (Nina Harry) in 1908 and brought up a family of eight. Of indifferent health as an asthma sufferer, Claude came to Newlyn after his childhood in Hampstead, and was a contemporary of the Procters (Ernest PROCTER and Doris Shaw PROCTER) at the FORBES SCHOOL of Painting. He spent two further years training in art in Switzerland, and later established a farm near Mullion, where he remained until he died. Painting latterly became of secondary importance.
