Herbert James Draper

Herbert James Draper (1863 – 22 September 1920) was an English Classicist painter whose career began in the Victorian era and extended through the first two decades of the 20th century.

Herbert James Draper (1863 – 22 September 1920) was an English Classicist painter whose career began in the Victorian era and extended through the first two decades of the 20th century.

Life
Born in London, the son of a jeweller named Henry Draper and his wife Emma,[1] he was educated at Bruce Castle School in Tottenham[2] and then went on to study art at the Royal Academy.[2] He undertook several educational trips to Rome and Paris between 1888 and 1892, having won the Royal Academy Gold Medal and Travelling Studentship in 1889. In the 1890s, he worked as an illustrator, eventually settling in London. In 1891, he married his wife Ida (née Williams), with whom he had a daughter, Yvonne.[2] He died of arteriosclerosis at the age of 56, in his home on Abbey Road.


Career

Draper's most productive period began in 1894. He focused mainly on mythological themes from ancient Greece. His painting "The Lament For Icarus" from 1898 won the gold medal at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1900 and was later bought for the Tate Gallery by the Chantrey Trustees. He was also responsible for the decoration of the ceiling of the Drapers' Hall in the City of London.[2][3] Though Draper was neither a member nor an associate of the Royal Academy he took part in the annual expositions from 1890 on.[2] In later years as the public tastes changed and mythological scenes became less popular he concentrated more on portraits.[2][4]

During his lifetime Draper was quite famous and a well-known portrait painter. In his last years his popularity faded, though there has recently been a revival of interest in his work on the art market.[5] The sale of his painting The Sea Maiden by the Royal Cornwall Museum in 2010, to help secure its finances, generated debate about the policy of disposing of art works for this purpose.[6]
