BM Tittensor - Scottish artist?
« on: Sunday 10 February 19 10:51 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I would like to find more information about an artist called B.M.Tittensor.  I know of two paintings by him/her:

Winter Sunset, Aberlady.  A signed watercolour sold in the USA in 2009.  Full details. Including an image can be found on the Arcadja web site.

Gosford Bay.  In a private collection.  Signed and dated 1988.

Given the Scottish subjects I wonder if he/she might be Scottish?

I have looked for a birth of a B Tittensor before 1970 in both the Scottish and English registers but didn't find a good match.  It could be a married surname, of course.

Does anyone have any more information or suggestions about where to look please?

Thanks,

Paul

Could he/she be a relative?

Colin and Gadget, thanks very much for your replies.

Beryl Mary looks like the one.  I'll look for her marriage to a Tittensor.

Harry Tittensor the artist worked for Royal Doulton in Staffordshire.  There is more information about him on my web site (link below - follow the link "Some Notable Tittensors").

Thanks for your help,

Paul
