William Lee-Hankey

William Lee-Hankey. Peasant Life. Oil on canvas, signed and dated 1914. An iconic work and certainly one of Lee-Hankey's strongest compositions, being a rustic scene depicting everyday life with a mother and young child providing the main focus.

Titled on old inventory label, verso.
 
Lee-Hankey was a member of the British Newlyn School which favoured a naturalistic style of painting. He was born in Chester, England. Following art studies there he went to the Royal College of Art, London, then to Paris. 
 
In Paris he became influenced by the work of Jules Bastien-Lepage, who also favoured rustic scenes depicted in a realistic but sentimental style, and he is best known for his portraits of pastoral life, particularly in studies of mothers with young children. He stayed in France in the early 1900s, painting many of his works in Brittany and Normandy, where he depicted a peasant lifestyle which was already disappearing in England. From 1904 until well after World War I he maintained a studio at the Etaples art colony. His work is represented in collections both in England and abroad.
 
Exhibited : The Royal Academy (From 1893); The Old Watercolour Society; The New Watercolour Society; The Royal Institute of Painters in Oil Colours.

Medium: Oil on canvas - Frame: Yes
