Claude Allin Shepperson, ARA ARWS ARE RI (1867-1921)

As a man and an artist, Claude Shepperson was praised for his charm and refinement, and he remains best known for the elongated elegance of his female type, the ‘Shepperson Girl’. Nevertheless, his artistic accomplishments were wide-ranging, and included painting, printmaking and illustration.
Claude Shepperson was born in Beckenham, Kent, on 25 October 1867. Educated privately, he spent the years 1880-82 at Weymouth College. Though first studying law, he turned to art, and spent two years in Paris. On his return to London, he took classes at Heatherley’s (1891), and received help from Sir Frank Short.
