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.
