IPSWICH SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL & AMATEUR ARTISTS

? - ?

The Ipswich Society of Professional & Amateur Artists was founded in 1832, probably by Henry Davy [q.v.] who tutored the young artists, and over the next five years had upwards of 50 members. It faded away about 1840 when the Committee, on 30 January 'failed to help a proposed exhibition by Suffolk Artists'. It had several noted artist members including Robert Burrows, Gainsborough Dupont, Jabez Hare, Samuel Read and Edward Smythe. George Rowney of London, a supplier of artist's material, was an honorary member. The Minute Book for 1832-1837 is at Suffolk Record Office, Ipswich (K13/1/10.)
