Albert Durer Lucas (1828-1918)
The son of the celebrated sculptor Richard Cockle Lucas, Albert was born in 1828 in Bayswater.
He exhibited mainly in London between 1859-78 with the Royal Institute and the Society of British Artists. He painted exquisite, detailed studies of flowers and foliage, sometimes with butterflies and other insects.
In 1910 he caused a furore when he announce that the Flora recently bought by the Berlin Museum as a Leonardo, was in fact by his father.
Examples of his work are in the Southampton City Art Gallery, Russell-Coates Art Gallery & Museum, the Shipley Art Gallery, and elsewhere.
