Walter John Clutterbuck
Having seen a couple of photographs published in the EDP recently I was prompted to look on-line for more information. The final photo of the series was entitled Our Marsham Forge taken by Walter John Clutterbuck (1853-1937) of Marsham Hall in 1922, and part of the Masterpieces: Art and East Anglia exhibition at the Sainsbury Centre which unfortunately closed in February.
I quote: Walter Clutterbuck came from a wealthy Wiltshire family but spent much of his life (when not travelling) in Norfolk, first at Northrepps Cottage, then Marsham Hall. As a young man he was a supervisor in a Ceylon tea plantation for a time but ultimately had no need to work. His main passions seem to have been travel and photography and which he successfully combined. He published four travel books and at the age of 39 married an artist Violet Smith who had connections locally. Walter Clutterbuck was an accomplished photographer
The Norfolk Heritage Centre holds the main body of his photographic work: 35 albums and 48 exhibition prints. The albums are a record of home life and travels including visits to Norway, Brittany, Tenerife, St Tropez, Japan, Dalmatia, Belgium and India.
He exhibited his photographs at the Royal Photographic Society in 1911. Some of his photographs can be viewed on the Norfolk Heritage Centre web site.
I couldnt find out much about Violet, but she seems to have been a successful artist. Was she the Mrs Clutterbuck who was founding member in 1919 and for many years President of Marsham WI, I wonder? Perhaps there are still Marsham residents who already knew about this Marsham couple and their work.
Dorothy, I have included two paintings by Violet Clutterbuck. Adrian
