Carr - Tom Carr (Born 1912)

Tom Carr (Born 1912). Born in 1912, Tom Carr spent his early years in the colliery as a blacksmith and the war years making anchors for the Navy. Due to general ill health, Carr went to Kings College, Newcastle where he was awarded a certificate in fine art. Tom Carr specialised predominantly in hunting scenes, mainly of the Northern Hunts (The Jed Forest and the Braes of Derwent), but works also exist of the Dukes of Beaufort / Northumberland and of the Heythrop, having spent two seasons with the latter. Carr also studied dry point etching under George Vernon Stokes and produced many limited editions etchings of his hunting scenes.
