Footnotes

  • ILLUSTRATED:
    David Tovey, St Ives (1860-1930) – The Artists and the Community – A Social History, Tewkesbury 2009, p. 243

    Hugh C. Blackden was born in Bournemouth in 1871 and graduated from Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He studied at Bushey under Sir Hubert von Herkomer between 1894-8 and at St. Ives between 1897-9, being a student of Julius Olsson. He settled at Hawke's Point, Lelant and exhibited 'St. Ives harbour on a grey day' hung at the Royal Academy in 1898 (no. 306).
    He was considered a "genial, kind and unworldly" man, who was last recorded in St. Ives playing mandolin in an entertainment in November 1899 to raise funds for the widows and orphans of soldiers killed in the Boer War. Ironically, he himself then enlisted, serving in South Africa as a Private in the Imperial Yeomanry (50th Company), but died from an attack of fever and sunstroke on 14th June 1900.

    We are grateful to David Tovey for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
