Play it again, Sam!: A Retrospective of the paintings of Sam Dodwell R.I.17. Feb - 3. Feb 07 / ended Mid-Cornwall Galleries
Sam Dodwell was born in London in 1909. Painting, which he discovered as a small child, at once became the driving force in his life. At age 18 he travelled by train to Cornwall for a holiday and, arriving in Polperro, decided that the county would one day be his home. Prevented by his father and the depression of 1926 from making painting his career he went into banking, rose to the top of a U.S. bank in London and also served through World War II as an R.A.F. Squadron Leader.
