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

Edward Handley-Read was a very accomplished British portrait and landscape painter. Born in the London area in 1870, he studied at the Kensington and Westminster schools of art and at the Royal Academy School where he won the Creswick Prize for his works.  In 1895 he became a member of the Royal Society of British Artists.

Handley-Read grew up in a romantic and exciting time, when the British Empire was at its greatest.  Queen Victoria was ruling half the world, industry was exploding, and motor cars and planes were just being developed.  It was a time when there was so much to record and plenty of money with the new the industrial tycoons, and those making fortunes in the colonies, to support very good artists.

Handley-Read exhibited widely throughout Great Britain, although most of his works were shown at the Royal Academy (17) and the Royal Society of British artists (123) in London.  He moved around the country living mostly in the south of England and in Lincolnshire.
