|Biography: ||A specialist in equestrian hunting and racing subjects, Lionel Dalhoisie Edwards has been called the "grand old man of British Sporting Art." Born in Clifton, England, he studied under A.S. Cope in South Kensington, London, at Heatherley's School of Fine Art in Chelsea, and with the British artist William Frank Calderon. During his early years Edwards was deeply influenced by the work of the French painter Aime Morot. |
Edwards exhibited at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, of which he became a member in 1927, and other London galleries including the Royal Academy in 1931, and he was a member of the London Sketch Club. He illustrated numerous books including My Hunting Sketch Book (two volumes, London, 1928 and 1930). He lived at West Tytherley, Wiltshire for many years.
