John Baragwanath KING

John Baragwanath KING

Born in Cornwall, the artist trained first as an engineer before turning to art, and exhibited in London, Manchester and Paris.  He lived at 'Westbourne', St Austell, but had a studio in Plymouth.   Some of his work was purchased by King Edward VII.

A correspondent (2023) has told us of a painting by this artist in his possession, entitled 'Barton Farm, Pentewan'.
