About the Artist:
Painter of genre, architectural subjects, industrial scenes, marines and figures, in oil and water-colour. Also masterful etcher and lithographer. Born on 13th May 1867 in Bruges, Belgium, the son of a Welsh architect. Received his early art training from his father but no formal study. Then worked for three years in the Oxford Street workshops of William Morris 1882-84 when he was engaged in making facsimilies of Flemish tapestries. The Morris period was interspersed with foreign travel and after leaving Morris his love of the sea led him to further visits abroad. He stayed for a time in Sandwich, Kent, where he had to sell his marine drawings for small sums in order to live. Began exhibiting at the R.A. in 1885. At this time he visited North Africa and the countries around the Black Sea. Later to Russia, Spain, Italy, France, South Africa, Malaya and Japan. From 1890 onwards he achieved quick success, receiving the gold medal at the Chicago Exhibition for the Convict Ship. He had an international reputation both as a painter and etcher, and was honoured by many foregin academies. In 1924 a restrospective exhibition of his work was opened at Queen's Gate by the Prime Minister of the day, Ramsay MacDonald. One-quarter of his total output was shown and the exhibition was an enormous triumph. Elected R.E. 1904, A.R.A. 1904 and R.A. 1919. Knighted 1941. Died on 11th June 1956 at his home in Ditchling, Sussex.
