Tracey Douglas Dyke HART

Tracey Douglas Dyke HART
aka Tracey Dyke

Born at the Lizard, Cornwall, in 1871 the sixth of twelve children of artist Thomas HART. Using watercolours, he painted landscapes of the Lizard area and Cornish coastal scenes.  He liked to paint panoramic views, as did his father. He is recorded as a landscape painter at the family home, Polbrean at The Lizard in1891 and is probably the Thomas D Hart who was a boarder at Mullion Cove Hotel as a watercolour artist in 1901. After that there is little known of his life and he probably emigrated to USA in 1910 as there is a record of a Tracey Hart sailing to New York on the Adriatic in that year.  He died in Vancouver aged 60.
