 John Everett

Herbert Barnard John Everett; 1876–1949 Dorchester born painter and etcher.
Cornwall was an important influence for Everett, and he first visited in 1896. He stayed at St Ives with friends who were establishing the St Ives Arts Club, in order to pursue marine and coastal painting. Close freind of Thomas Hardy, John enrolled at the Slade School of Art in London, studying there for a year before signing on as a sailor in a sailing ship going to Australia. His address was in London in 1900, and Co Wicklow, Ireland in 1904.
Following the end of WWI Everett went to Helston in 1919. He then moved on to Porthleven before renting a studio at Sennen, which he chose for its good view of the sea.
