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

Hubert von Herkomer was a prominent member of the Royal Academy, Royal Water-Colour Society, and the Royal Engravers. He left Bavaria for Southampton in 1857, and studied at the Royal College of Art, London.

Herkomer was equally well received for his paintings, sculptures and etchings. In this latter medium he was a tireless experimenter, and he became accomplished in all forms of original graphic art. He founded and directed the Herkomer School of Art at Bushey, Herfordshire (1883-1904), and was the Slade Professor of Art at Oxford University from 1885 to 1894.
Herkomer as well wrote a great deal upon the arts. His most famous books include Etchings and Mezzotint Engraving, which was published in 1892, and his autobiography, My School and my Gospel, published in 1907. In 1896 Hubert von Herkomer was Knighted by Queen Victoria.
Herkomer’s most highly respected works of art are his portraits and figure studies. During his career he both etched and engraved such portraits of contemporary composers and artists as Richard Wagner, Seymour Haden, Holman Hunt and Cecil Lawson. Many of his great figure studies, such as Babes in the Wood concentrated upon the world of children.
