Lucy Elizabeth Kemp-Welch Biography

Lucy Kemp-Welch was born in Bournemouth. She showed an early excellence in art, exhibiting for the first time when she was 14 years old, and moving to Bushey to study at Hubert von Herkomerís art school at the age of 19. Kemp-Welch believed in painting out of doors, and made numerous quick oil sketches. As one of Herkomer's best and most favoured students, she was able to set up her own studio, in an old former inn known as 'Kingsley'. She took over the direction of the School after Herkomer in 1905 and ran it until 1926, when she spent several summers following Sanger's Circus, recording the horses.
