Samuel Luke Fildes
Birth: Oct. 18, 1844
Death: Feb. 27, 1927

Sir Fildes was an artist and illustrator of magazines and books, including Dickens' last novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. His first great public success was the painting Applicants for Admission to a Casual Ward (1874), based on an earlier drawing that was published in the first edition of The Graphic. In addition to his "social realism," he also painted many rural and Venetian scenes such as A Village Wedding and An Al Fresco Toilet. During the 1890s he concentrated more on portraiture and established a large and fashionable clientele. He painted state portraits of King Edward VII in 1901, Queen Alexandra in 1905 and King George V in 1912. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
