Thomas Walter Wilson, RI ROI (1851-1912)

Thomas Walter Wilson worked successfully as both a landscape painter and a magazine illustrator during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His drawings appeared most regularly in The Graphic and The Illustrated London News.

Thomas Walter Wilson was born in London on 7 November 1851, the third son of the painter and illustrator, Thomas Harrington Wilson. He gave his places of education – in Who’s Who for 1908 – as ‘St Mark and Hollywood House, Chelsea’. He studied at the National Art Training School, South Kensington, from 1868, being declared a National Scholar in the following year, and going on to win a Gold Medal and several Silver Medals. The Science and Art Department, the government body that ran the training school, selected Wilson to go to Bayeux, in Normandy, on some form of special service.
