Leonard Campbell Taylor (1874 - 1969)

"Patience" 1906

"Themes of taste and connoisseurship, with the emphasis on reproducing in meticulous verisimilitude the nuances of a particular time, are central to Taylor's work. Carefully judged in terms of colour and composition, they function almost as pieces of craftsmanship: repeated details, echoed passages, symmetry and overall harmony supporting the aesthetic axiom that a painting can be compared to a piece of music, or share the studious integrity of an arts and crafts objet de art."


"The Hall" 1952

Leonard Campbell Taylor was born 12th December, 1874 in Oxford. He was an English painter of subject pictures, portraits, and interiors with figures. He first studied at the Ruskin School, Oxford, and then at the St John's Wood School of Art in London and at the Royal Academy School starting in 1905.

He exhibited in London and Paris, working in a careful, traditional manner and ignoring the modern modes of art around him. Among other things, he did portraits of wealthy patrons like the Courtaulds. The artist lived in Suffolk. Died 1969.
