Thomas Henry Victor fl. 1920 -1930
T. H. Victor commonly used the pseudonym 'W. Sands', why he did this is unclear,
but occasionally artists who were contracted to paint for a specific gallery would
earn "money on the side" by painting under a false name. A prolific westcountry artist who painted mainly busy harbour and street scenes. His pictures are characterized by both lively composition and colour.
Born on the 6th September 1894 in Penzance, Cornwall, he later owned a shop in Mousehole.
