Wintering in Falmouth

11 Jan 2017 - 09 Feb 2017

Nostalgic scenes of Old Falmouth and area, many never publicly displayed before, will feature in this exhibition.


Claude Hamilton Rowbotham was not only a skilled artist but produced remarkably detailed artworks using a single-plate coloured etching process that he invented but never revealed, taking the secret to his grave.


Born in 1864, Rowbotham starting coming to Falmouth in the 1890s for the sake of his health, and was a leading light in the town's art community.
