Following studies in Nottingham, London and at Sir Hubert von Herkomer’s School of Art at Bushey, Hertfordshire, Arnesby Brown joined the colony of artists living and working in St Ives where he began painting outdoors. From 1890 Arnesby Brown began exhibiting works at the Royal Academy and the Tate Gallery in London. He was elected a member of the Royal Academy in 1915 and spent the years following this alternating between Haddiscoe in Norfolk and St Ives in Cornwall, before taking a house in Chelsea.
