Sitter in 2 portraits
Artist of 3 portraits
Sir William Reynolds-Stephens was a sculptor, decorative artist and painter. Born of British parents, he was educated in Germany and England and then at the Royal Academy Schools in London from 1884 to 1887, winning prizes in painting and sculpture. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1886 to 1942 but abandoned painting and worked solely as a sculptor after 1894. His paintings were of genre and literary subjects, often allegorical, and showed the influence of the Pre-Raphaelites and Alfred Gilbert. As a designer, he made objects such as light shades, fireplaces and wall decorations, using floral and plant-like forms in an Art Nouveau style.
