Arthur Drummond (British artist, 1871-1951)


Arthur Drummond was born in 1871, in Bristol, southwest England. He was a British Classicist painter and he was encouraged to learn the arts from a very young age by his father who was a maritime artist, John Drummond. He studied Academic painting in France in the studios of Jean Joseph Benjamin Constant and Jean-Paul Laurens, and went on to learn Neo-Classical art from Sir Lawrence Allma-Tadema. Drummond’s works were influenced the most by his connection to Alma-Tadema. He mainly painted scenes from history and daily life scenes of Ancient Egyptian, Roman and Greek themes, very similarly associated to the paintings made by Alma-Tadema. Drummond, at the age of 19, was living in St Peter’s Park, Middlesex. He was, at that age, preparing to enter his first painting, A Minstrel, into the Royal Academy exhibition of 1890. He regularly entered his pieces to the Royal Academy, every two or three years, until his last work exhibited there in 1901. he artworks of Arthur Drummond (1871-1951) should not be confused with those of Canadian landscape artist, Arthur A. Drummond (1891-1977).
