Tea in the Studio, 1932
Arthur George Walker RA (1861 - 1939)
RA Collection: Art
In this painting the artist’s brother, Harold, is shown having tea in his brother’s studio. The extent of Walker’s output is clearly seen in this painting, with sculpture such as The Necromancer on the left, various portrait busts, the back view of his Diploma work, Grief, on the right, and the equestrian statue of John Wesley in the back studio.
Kineton Parkes wrote about Walker in 1931 and described him as ‘one of the greatest workers. His work is his life, and he has no interests outside it. He is never tired of carving with chisel or with knife, but if he should be without either he turns to painting in oils, or modelling in clay.’
