Leghe Suthers started to paint in Newlyn in about 1883 after painting in Brittany but he was not considered to be one of the most technically accomplished artists in Newlyn. It is not known whether he ever settled there or simply used it as one of many workplaces. It is thought that he had probably stopped painting in Newlyn by 1900 and had settled along with Frederick Hall in Porlock, Somerset, the two being friends and of a similar academic and artistic persuasion.
