William Walcot  RBA, RE

William Walcot was a highly distinctive and brilliant watercolour artist and etcher. He was born in Russia in 1874 his father was an English businessman and his mother the daughter of a Russian landowner and studied art at the Imperial Academy of Art, Petrograd and in Paris. He then practised as an architect in Moscow and this is evident in much of his work. He later moved to London and Oxford and exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy (40), Fine Art Society (319), Royal Society of British Artists (25), Beaux Arts Gallery (182) and many others.

This gallery has long admired his work and these two examples are particularly fine and much collected.
