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

Solomon Joseph Solomon was born in London September 16,1860. Solomon received extensive training as an artist, studying, sequentially, at Heatherley School of Fine Art, the Royal Academy Schools, the Munich Academy, and École des Beaux-Arts under Alexandre Cabanel Solomon also studied separately under Rev. S. Singer.

 He painted mainly portraits, for example, Mrs Patrick Campbell as 'Paula Tanqueray' (1894; The Arts Club, London), which made his name as a portraitist. However, he also painted mythological and biblical scenes, which were often large and theatrical. He had a number of important patrons among rich Jewish entrepreneurs, such as Alfred Mond, who commissioned Mrs. Alfred Mond and her Children (1908; Private Collection). During  World War I, Solomon was a pioneer of camouflage techniques, even establishing a camouflage school in 1916 in Hyde Park, and publishing a book on the subject in 1920.

Solomon exhibited from 1881 at the Royal Academy, New Gallery and Society of British Artists. In 1886, he was elected a member of the New English Art Club, a group with which James Whistler exhibited in 1888. A year later he entered into membership at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. In 1891, he was elected a member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and in 1896, he became an associate of the Royal Academy, achieving full membership in 1906. He was a member of The Arts Club from 1887 until at least 1920. He joined the Royal Society of British Artists in 1919, and in that year was appointed its President, a role also undertaken by other notable British artists such as James Whistler and Walter Sickert.
