HOLLOBON, Jesse 1860–1945?

Educated Sydenham Public School, Christchurch, where he was Dux. Had an art shop in Sydenham for many years: his great interest was in painting. He carved too, and made the pew ends for the old St. Saviour's Church, Sydenham, and St. John's, Latimer Square. Was a deeply religious man and once spent a time on Quail Island looking after lepers there. As his family was growing up used to take them camping at Karitane Point, Otago, where he liked to paint. Worked in oils, but mainly in watercolours. Exhibited: CSA 1885, 1889–1913 and 1920–37; and with art societies in Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin. Said to have had a one-man show of oils. Represented: Canterbury Museum, Hocken.
