Harry Edmund Pritchett - Archaeologist and Artist

Island of Wight archaeologist and artist Harry Pritchett: a quiet self-contained man, with his beret and pointed beard (an unusual feature in the ‘Twenties), his appearance and demeanour indicated essentially what he was – an artist and scholar, albeit untrained and to a certain degree untutored.

Evidence of his skill as a wood-carver was to be found in the beautifully decorated oak chairs with which as a young man he had furnished his home.
When engaged in the graphic arts, Harry Pritchett did most of his work in water-colours.
