Collection InformationAt Sulis Fine Art we are thrilled to have acquired an excellent and dynamic new collection of watercolours and graphite drawings by the Hannaford family. Based in Norwich, the family comprised of two key artistic figures; Charles Edward Hannaford and his son, Charles Arthur.
Charles Edward Hannaford R.B.A. (1863 - 1955)
Charles Edward Hannaford was a noted watercolour artist and member of the Royal Society of British Artists. Educated in Paris, Hannaford first qualified as an architect and civil engineer. Later he abandoned this career and moved to Plymouth to become a full-time artist, studying under the late Stanhope Forbes RA. He had a weakness for Scottish and Dartmoor pictures, also boating and fishing scenes, with some of his works being purchased by the Royal Collection.
He held exhibitions in the Walker Gallery, Bond Street in 1910 and 1912 and from the latter, one of his watercolours was purchased by King George and another by Queen Alexandra. Later, he exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal institute, R.B.A., Royal Canadian Academy and the Royal Cambrian Academy, Manchester. After an invitation by Princess Marie Louise he painted a picture of the Queen’s Doll House. Many of his watercolours were sold in America and Canada. He occasionally worked in oils but his preferred medium was watercolour. Hannaford lived for periods in Fowey Cornwall and London before moving to Norfolk. For a time he lived at Stalham and South Walsham where he was churchwarden before settling in Thorpe. Provenance: C.A. Hannaford; Frank Albert Allchin (his father-in-law); Frank McDonald (Frank Albert Allchin's son); Frank Raymond Allchin (Frank McDonald's son); Bridget Allchin (Frank Raymond Allchin's wife).
