The Carter Prestons And Tyson Smiths

800 words - 4 pages

In opposition to his fellow sculptor and future brother-in-law, Tyson Smith had great opportunities to visit major exhibitions by renowned, innovative and pioneering artists alongside with his parents, and the person who pushed him more was his father, George. During the end of the Nineteenth Century, Liverpool was fortunate to host design exhibitions of International importance and from a young age until his university years, Tyson Smith had visited most of the shows such as the ‘’Second International Jubilee Exhibition in 1886’’.14 Many pioneering and influential architects, designers and furniture manufacturers were involved in the shows including Arthur H.

In 1897 he enrolled at the Municipal School of Art to further explore the skills he developed at the ‘stone yard’. Tyson Smith was an energetic young man, passionate about creation that he could not stand the theoretical approach of the course and after only two weeks he moved to the Liverpool School of Applied Arts. He joined his sister and his future brother-in-law at the ‘Art Sheds’ of the Liverpool University where he had the opportunity to study wood carving and modelling.
