Artist Biography

John Seymour Lucas was a sculptor and genre painter. Born in London, Lucas was first apprenticed to a wood carver and then to a sculptor. At sixteen he began a course of study with his cousin, John Templeton Lucas, (1836-1880) a noted genre painter and later enrolled at Heatherley's, St. Martin's School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools in 1871. Lucas’ artistic education included extensive travels around Europe, particularly Holland and Spain, where he studied the Flemish and Spanish Masters. Specialising in historical genre, he exhibited oils and watercolours in London and provincial centres, most regularly at the Royal Academy who elected him an associate in 1886 and a full member in 1898. He was also a visiting teacher at the RA Schools from 1886. During the 1890's, Lucas illustrated a considerable number of historical stones for books and magazines in grey wash and heavy body colour. His periodical contributions include those made to The Graphic. He was also elected RI in 1877.
