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

Harry Banks was born in London, and educated at Goldsmith's College. In 1902 he moved to Dorset. He also spent part of his time living in Bristol, while his daughter attended school there. Examples of his prints of Bristol are held at the City Museum and Art Gallery.  He exhibited widely, at the Royal Academy, Royal West of England Academy, the Paris Salon and elsewhere 1916-21. His addresses were Thorncombe, Chard, Somerset, and 1 Royal York Crescent, Clifton, Bristol.

Harry married a Miss Rowntree, whose family owned one of Britain's biggest chocolate manufacturers. This possibly helped his finances! Harry was a member of the Chelsea Arts Club, where one of his friends was Lucien Pissaro, whose father was more famous. Lucien had a small property near Synderford and after visiting him there Harry found and bought Synderford House. When the studio was built Lucien used to work there as well.

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

The following information, written by Cecil Broome, is from the Bristol Savages*, an art association from Bristol, England whose member referred to themselves as "The Tribe".

Harry Banks came from London, where he was quite well known as an artist and in 1902 his design was chosen for the invitation dinner cards for the Coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. This was a very colourful and elaborate design and the Tribe possesses a copy of it, together with an explanation of the symbolism, which was issued by HM Stationary Office (Scrap Book 2, p 106).

He was an associate member of the Royal Watercolor Association.  He died in 1946, having spent a great deal of his time in Europe.
