David W. Haddon (fl. 1884-1911) - Signed Oil, Portrait of a Cornish Fisherman

Item Sold


A beautiful late 19th / early 20th century oval portrait by the well listed British artist David W. Haddon, depicting a bearded fisherman polishing a lamp in an interior. The play of light on the sitter's face and hands exemplifies the artist's expert handling of the oil paint. Signed by the artist to the lower left and excellently presented in a later gold painted wooden frame. On board.


There are some scattered areas of restoration and over painting showing under UV light, including small areas to the sitter's face and beard. A few horizontal hairline cracks to the board are visible, as shown. Overall the appearance is very good. The frame is in excellent condition.


73 x 58cm (28.7" x 22.8")
Framed Size: 85 x 69cm (33.5" x 27.2")

Artist Biography

David W. Haddon was a Birmingham born artist who spent time painting in Newlyn, Cornwall alongside his fellow Birmingham artists Walter Langley and Edwin Harris. Haddon is featured in the Cornwall Artists’ Index. Haddon spent time painting the local Cornish fishing community. Many of his portraits depict seafaring men and women, most often in interiors, and illuminate the effects of such a life on the sitter's weathered face and hands. Unlike other Newlyn School painters, Haddon's portfolio of work is filled with close up interior portraits, rather than the dramatic coastal landscapes of Cornwall.
