William Henry MARGETSON (1861-1940) ✿

William Henry Margetson was a British figurative painter whose subject matter was primarily Victorian-era women. Born in 1861 in London, United Kingdom, he studied at Dulwich College and at the Royal Academy of Arts, before becoming a member of the Royal Institute in 1909. Though the artist’s subjects varied, he made his living taking on portrait commissions. Today, his portrait of the poet Lord Alfred Tennyson hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in London. His later work was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite painters like William Holman Hunt as well as the work of Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema.
