In 1948 Alderman Dawson reported that Captain Edwin Crew of 10, Hornby Rd, St Annes had donated, to the Corporation, an oil painting by William Etty R.A. (1787-1848) entitled “Elmas the Sorcerer struck by Blindness”, as well as an old Dutch painting which the doner said had been in his family for 120 years… but where are they now?

There are over 250 works of art in the Lytham St Annes Art Collection but this number would be far greater if so many items were not designated as “unlocated”.

If you have any information that could help us to locate this artworks, please get in touch.
