A charming pair portraits full of character.
As an artist from Birmingham, Haddon must have been aware of the work and success of other artists from the city, who were establishing themselves as painters of Cornish scenes; most notably, of course, Walter Langley, who set up his studio in Newlyn in 1882, and Edwin Harris, who settled there in the following year. Like Langley and Harris, Haddon was to exhibit numerous times with the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (RBSA). It seems likely that these three artists met one another at some time in the early '80s, and that Haddon was inspired to go down to Newlyn and paint there, like his colleagues. And, indeed, we do find his name – though not much more – listed on the Cornwall Artists’ Index (CAI), a very useful, on-line directory.
