Artist. Born in Cookham, Berkshire, he was a painter best known for his work depicting Biblical scenes in his home town settings. At age seventeen he entered the Slade School of Fine Art London and his skill as a artist is evident in early works such as "The Fairy on the Waterlily Leaf" (1910). Considered one of Britain's most renowned 20th Century painters, his many works included "The Nativity" (1912), "Self Portrait with Patricia Preece" (1936), "Romantic Meeting" (1938), "Christ in the Wilderness" (1953) and "Christ Preaching at Cookham Regatta" (1955). In July 1959, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and later that year died of cancer at age 68 in Taplow, England.
