    Thank you for restoring my Gt Gt my relative’s work I am delighted. Where is it hanging?
    I have three of his paintings, one of a Cornish lane and cottage. It is unusual for JNB in that it is bright and sunny.
    When JNB died St Ives 1917, do you know what became of his wife and two sons?

    Best wishes

    • Dear Phillip,

      The painting is currently on display in our ‘Hireth’ exhibition. I’m afraid I do not know what became of his family. Please do come along and view the painting, its absolutely wonderful.
