Richard Beavis Biography

He was born in Exmouth, England in 1824. The son of a cobbler, Beavis resisted his father's attempts to bring him up in his own trade and instead passed his time scribbling all over the white-washed walls of the house. He cleverly sketched horses, dogs, cows, sheep and other sundry objects of everyday life - a pastime that caused many quarrels in the house. Encouraged by his friends, he moved to London in 1846 and enrolled as a student at the Government School of Design at Somerset House, which housed the Royal Academy and the Society of Antiquaries.
