Annie Rowney, Leghe Suthers (1856-1924) Featured Frank Bramley Print

Annie Rowney, Leghe Suthers (1856-1924)

Oil on canvas, Newlyn School, late 19th / early 20th century. John Lees, or 'Leghe' Suthers was born in Oldham, Greater Manchester. Very little is known about his early life, but it is assumed that he spent his formative years around Southport in Lancashire, where he is known to have lived before moving to Newlyn. Suthers studied at Verlat's Academy in Antwerp and was great friends with fellow Newlyn artists Fred Hall and Frank Bramley, who also studied there. He later met Stanhope Forbes in Brittany. He went to paint in Venice, and Venetian subjects dominated his early works shown at the Royal Academy. An early visitor to Newlyn, staying for some months in 1883, Suthers continued to use his Southport address for his Royal Academy submissions until 1893 (having first exhibited there in 1885). It is difficult to determine when he settled in Newlyn, particularly as he was often away from the village, but he was a keen advocate of the 'square brush' technique, clearly visible in this portrait, and seems to have been an integral member of the colony. It is thought that had probably stopped painting in Newlyn by 1900 and had settled along with Fred Hall in Porlock, Somerset
