Dessin des années 30 de Kenneth D. Shoesmith (1890-1939)
Kenneth Denton Shoesmith, british painter, 1890-1939
Born in Halifax, he was brought up in Blackpool and in 1906 went as a cadet to the Conway training ship. She was then moored in the Mersey and Shoesmith spent most of his spare time drawing the passing ships. He was largely self-taught but did subscribe to a correspondence course called “Revival of Youthful Art League”.
