Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The painter and printmaker John Absolon was born in Lambeth in 1815. Despite his London origins, Absolon concentrated on scenes of rural life. He was a precocious artist, who began to paint portraits in oil at the age of 15, and exhibited for the first time at the age of 17, at the Suffolk Street Gallery.

In 1839 Absolon returned to London after four years study in Paris. At this time he abandoned oil for watercolour, joining the New Water-Colours Society, of which he was for many years (showing 500 of 1361 characters).
