WILLIAM WALCOT

Artist & Architect

Chris Beetles Gallery, Ryder Street, London

5 - 20 October 2018

William Walcot (1874-1943) was the most celebrated architectural draughtsman working in England between the two world wars. Having practised architecture in Moscow for five years, he settled in London in 1906, and became a freelance draughtsman. His vivid presentation drawings for architects appeared at the Royal Academy, and led to solo shows at the Fine Art Society and election to the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers (ARE 1918, RE 1920) and the Royal Society of British Artists (1913). At the height of his career, he worked from studios in London, Oxford and Rome, and gained international success during the modern etching boom. This exhibition surveys the essential aspects of his art, and includes 17 paintings and over 60 etchings.
