Little is known about S C Turner, beyond the fact that he worked in the insurance industry all his career and retired to Boumemouth, where he began to collect watercolours and drawings. The collection grew, and in 1936 he extended his house to create a gallery. On his death in 1948 it was found that he had bequeathed his broad-ranging collection to the National Loan Collection Trust.
