Sitter in 23 portraits
(George) Warwick Deeping was a prolific English novelist and short story writer. Born into a family of doctors, he went to Trinity College, Cambridge, to study medicine and science, and then to Middlesex Hospital to finish his medical training. During the First World War, he served in the Royal Army Medical Corps. He wrote a series of historical novels, including Uther and Igraine, Bertrand of Brittany (1908) and The Red Scout (1909). These early works were successful enough to persuade Deeping to take up writing full time, having practised as a doctor for just one year. His most famous novel is Sorrell and Son (1925). It was a bestseller, and was made into a film in 1933.
