Frederick John Widgery 1861 - 1942
The younger son of the artist William Widgery, he was educated at the Cathedral School,
Exeter and later studied at the Exeter school of Art, then subsequently at South Kensington and in Antwerp.
He became very active in municipal affairs and was Mayor of Exeter from 1903 to 1904,
he was also chairman of many committees and a captain in the 'Volunteers.
His style is distinctive and influenced by his father although his work is noticeably more
formal than self taught William. The moorland scenes for which he is best known are hall marked
by the familiar purple and mauve of the heather rendered most commonly in gouache but also in watercolour and oil.
The coastlines and harbours are also well recorded by this artist and he was responsible
for the illustration of several moorland and coastal books.
A granite cross was erected on Brat Tor by his father William to celebrate Queen Victoria's jubilee
and has subsequently been renamed Widgery Cross.
Exhibited: 5@RA, 3 @RI, 6 @ROI, 3@L.
