H.L. WellingtonRoyal College of Art / 1923 - 19
Aquatint with very large margins, very scarce, platemark 200 x 230mm (8 x 9").
Probably a portrait of Hubert L. Wellington (1879-1967), artist and art teacher. Wellington arrived at the Slade to study at the same time as Wyndham Lewis, and was close friends with Camden Town Group members Spencer Gore and Harold Gilman. Wellington's work is in the Tate collection, but it was as a teacher that he made his most important contribution, working as lecturer and registrar from 1923-32 (during which time this print was made), and later becoming principal at Edinburgh College of Art and the Slade. Wellington's DNB entry was written by Sir William Coldstream, whose time at the Slade overlapped with Wellington's.
