Reginald TURVEY

Reginald TURVEY

Born in South Africa, he signed in as a guest of William Holt Yates TITCOMB at the St Ives Arts club in December 1904, but does not appear to have lived locally until the 1920s. Although he exhibited in STISA from 1929, his modernity was often considered crude, and he was not invited to become a member until April 1931. He was then living at Wheel Speed in Carbis Bay with his wife. He appears to have moved away shortly after 1933, and by 1940 was living in Totnes, Devon.
