Frederick John Lloyd Strevens (1902-1990), known as John, was born in Upton Park, Essex the son of a wharf labourer. Self-taught, his depictions of aristocratic Edwardian-era women set in lush floral environments were his trademark. He developed a love of art through an autodidact study of the styles of such painters as Paul Delaroche and Henry Herbert La Thangue. Strevens regularly showed at the Royal Academy, the Royal Society of British Artists, and the Paris Salon, among others, and his work can be found among the collections of the British Council. After his death in 1990, at Loughton the Epping Forest District Museum in Waltham Abbey held a retrospective of his work in 1991.
