Logsdail, William

British
artist

1859 1944

William M. Logsdail studied at the Lincoln School of Art, considered at the time to be one of the best art schools in England. He later moved on to the Antwerp Academy, where he became friends with the artist Frank Bramley, a member of the Newlyn School, based in the fishing village of Newlyn, Cornwall. The group were pioneers in Britain of plein air painting i.e. painting outdoors as opposed to in a studio and although Logsdail was not a member of the Newlyn group, he was certainly influenced by it. After Antwerp, Logsdail moved to Venice, also living for a time in Sicily and in Cairo. To begin with, he mostly painted architectural subjects, but from 1903 onwards he restricted his work to portraiture.
