Herbert William Hicks 1880 - 1944
Painter in watercolour and gouache of moorland and coastal scenes, who was born in Exeter in 1880. A self taught artists, 'Herbie Hicks' was a prolific painter of many West Contry views in a similar style to F.J. Widgery. Many of the subjects were local Devon views and were usually inscribed wth the loction on the reverse.
Much of his work was sold through C. Samuel's Gallery, in Fore Street, Exeter. He was a friend of the Exeter artist, Frederick Parr and sometimes painted together in an attic studio.
A fall in demand for the pictures in the 1930's forced Hicks to abandon painting and concentrate on his hairdressing business.
