This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography is based on information provided to AskART by the Springfield Museum of Art in Springfield, Ohio:

Born in England and raised on the Isle of Man between Scotland and England, Ernest Bradshaw established his reputation in the business of photogravure, but he also did landscape painting. He became one of the founding members of the Springfield Art Center, later the Springfield Museum of Art of Springfield, Ohio.

As a child he spent much time with his grandfather, who was an itinerant photographer, and with three uncles who were artists. (A great grandfather claims to have designed the curlicues that became the Paisley design). During his teen years, Ernest lived with one of the uncles in Manchester, England, where he met a group of artists that encouraged his interests. He joined the Army, and then became involved with the process of photogravure, working for the Rembrandt Company in this intaglio printing process of color reproduction.

In 1903, he came to America, and set up a photogravure press in Brooklyn, New York, and helped form the Vandyck Gravure Company. During World War I, he returned to the Army being stationed in England and working with aerial photography.

He then spent three years in India, establishing himself in gravure printing and in 1921, became state artist and photographer to the Maharajah of Alwar. In 1927, he returned to England, went briefly back to India, and then he and his wife moved permanently to the United States, where he worked in magazine printing.

As a resident of Springfield, Ohio he was much involved with the local art scene and also did landscape painting. He died in Springfield in 1955.
