Biography Percy Carpenter
Percy Carpenter, active in Asia between 1851 and 1858, studied at the Royal Academy Schools in 1836. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1841 and the British Institution in 1842 before setting off to the East in 1851.
His dated works place him in Singapore in 1853 until at least 1856-7, the dates of his panoramic view of 'Singapore from Mount Wallich, 1856' and his watercolour of 'A view outside a house in Singapore, 1857' (both works in the National Museum of Singapore, for which see W.H. Suen, Singapore through 19th Century Prints & Paintings, Singapore, 2010, pp.96-7 and 119). The panorama was possibly the view of Singapore Carpenter exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1858.
