Herbert Thomas Dicksee RE (1862-1942)

A painter and etcher, depicting mainly animals, especially lions - another artist who painted similar pictures was J. T. Nettleship. He also made copies after Frank Dicksee, genre paintings, etchings, and was art teacher at the City of London School after his father, John Robert Dicksee. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1885-1904, and his exhibited pictures include an evocative Wounded Lioness (1896), Raiders (1897) showing a lion and lioness, and In the Silent North (1903) showing two wondrously menacing-looking polar bears approaching an upturned sled.

Dicksee lived with the rest of the family in Fitzroy Square, later moving to Hampstead.
