Herbert Arnould OLIVIER (1861-1952) ✿

Herbert Arnould Olivier (1861 – 1952), was a British artist, best known for his portrait and landscape paintings. Olivier was educated at Sherborne School, a public school in Dorset and in 1922 gave his painting Easter Morn to the school.
The painting was originally intended for a church in Italy but it was put in such a bad light that he refused to leave it there. He studied at the Royal Academy Schools beginning in 1881, where he won the Creswick Prize in 1882.
Olivier exhibited extensively, including the Royal Academy starting in 1883, the R. P., the R. I. and the Paris Salon. He taught at the Bombay School of Art in the 1880s. He went to Kashmir with the Duke and Duchess of Connaught in 1884.
In 1885 he showed 66 of the paintings from his trip to Kashmir at the Fine Art Society. These works were considered "effective, though hard and coarse in colour" by critics. He had a one-man exhibition at the Grafton Galleries in 1908.
Olivier was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1887 and to the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours in 1929 where a major retrospective exhibition of his work was held in 1935.
