Philip Connard (1875 – 1958)
Born in Southport, Lancashire, he won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art, and in 1898 a British Institution Prize for study in Paris. He worked outdoors in an impressionist style and indoors in a more realistic manner. A poster made from one of his paintings, “Bayswater on the Serpentine” is available all over the World Wide Web. In 1909 a reviewer in The New Age suggested that he was indebted–perhaps too much so–to Constable. He did some book illustrating as well.
