Arthur George Walker RA (1861 - 1939)
RA Collection: Art
The sculptures shown in Walker’s studio include a figure of Dante, a full size statue of Circe, which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1907 and on the shelf, the Florence Nightingale memorial relief from St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The figure seated in the foreground is the artist’s brother Harold, who is also depicted in Tea in the Studio. Both of these paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1932. Walker was based at Cedar Studios, Glebe Place, Chelsea from 1890 but in 1933 he moved to Dorset and it is likely that he painted this group of studio views to record his old home before the move.
