British artist Arthur Trevor Haddon was both an oil painter and watercolorist who specialized in landscapes, seascapes and the country genre. He was also a skilled portraitist and painter of figures. In 1883, at the age of 19, he won a 3 year art scholarship to the Slade schools in England and later studied painting in Rome and Madrid.
