Painting by S. Hargreaves
I inherited a still life painting by S. Hargreaves, dated 1927, from the Healey/Lund family in Sutton. Could anyone provide me with any background on the artist?

Hello Lynda,
Spencer Hargreaves was my great uncle. His father Tempest was a silk warp dresser who with his wife Jane Spencer brought up a large family in No1 North Place a small back-to-back. I know nothing about whether Spencer was a prolific painter, but his nephew Harry Hargreaves was a gifted artist and painted a number of pictures in and around Sutton-in-Craven. I should like to know more about the painting. Thanks and thanks to Josie.
Patrick Hargreaves, Glusburn.
