Glyn Warren Philpot (1884–1937)

National Portrait Gallery, London

British painter and sculptor, born in London. He studied at Lambeth School of Art, 1900–03, and at the *Académie Julian, Paris, 1905. It was as a portraitist that Philpot had his main success, which was at its height in the 1920s. However, he also did a mural, Richard I Leaving England for the Crusades (1927), for St Stephen's Hall, Westminster, and had ambitions as a painter of allegories and religious subjects (he became a convert to Catholicism in 1905).
