Painter. Best known for historical and military subjects. Born in London, where he studied at art school, he first exhibited at the Royal Academy at the age of 21. One of his pictures was then exhibited at the RA every year until his death. Elected as an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1881, he attained full membership in 1891, and was Keeper of the Royal Academy from 1911, and died there (at Burlington House). Among his more than 26 major works perhaps the best known are "Cromwell at Dunbar" (1886, bought by the Chantrey Fund); "Queen Mary's Farewell to Scotland" (1892) and "The Queen's Diamond Jubilee at St. Paul's" (1897, painted for the Corporation of the City of London, and kept at The Guildhall.) A six-foot long canvas, "Washington's Farewell to the Army" (1902), was sold by Christie's New York in 2004.
