Brabazon, Hercules Brabazon (1821-1906) by Scholes, Robert
Hercules Brabazon Brabazon (1821 – 1906)
He was born in Paris and educated at Harrow and Cambridge. He studied art in Rome and travelled with Ruskin. His family wealth enabled him to travel widely, and he did so, gaining a solid reputation through the watercolors and drawings he made on his travels, but his fame came quite late in his life. An original member of the New English Art Club, he had a considerable success with a show at the Goupil Gallery in 1892, for which the catalogue had a foreword written by his friend, John Singer Sargent.
