  • Artist - Philip Connard - Biography
    Philip Connard, painter, teacher, and illustrator, was born in the coastal town of Southport, Merseyside. Initially working as a house painter, he studied art during spare hours before eventually winning a full-time scholarship to the Royal College of Art. In 1898 Connard travelled to Paris where he continued to develop his painterly style. On his return to London, Connard took up a job as a teacher and illustrator at Lambeth School of Art and began showing his work in a number of gallseries. An Official War Artist during WWI, Connard famously painted murals for Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and interiors for the Queen Mary liner. Elected a Royal Academician in 1925, he was further appointed the role of Keeper of the Academy, which he held during the late 1940s. He died in Twickenham, 1958.
