Island Artists

William Hoggatt

William Hoggatt, an 'almost Manx artist', (1879-1961) eloped to the Isle of Man in 1907 with his wife Dazine, who he met whilst working for the Tate Gallery in London. Once Hoggatt moved to the Isle of Man he restricted his painting entirely to Manx subjects. Many of his finest watercolours, pastels and oil paintings were drawn from scenes within walking distance of his Port Erin home. These local scenes won him an international reputation and are celebrated in our exhibition William Hoggatt: Capturing Light and Shadow running between 14 September 2019 and 26 January 2020 at the Manx Museum.
