Herbert C Ahier (1888-1976)

Herbert Charles Touseau Ahier (1888-1976)

The illustrator, Herbert C Ahier, established himself before the First World War as a specialist in images of ships. After that war, he worked as a commercial artist, and occasional illustrator, for J M Dent & Sons, revealing a talent for a wider range of imagery. He extended this talent, in later life, in producing pleasing traditional landscape watercolours.

Herbert Ahier was born in Mile End, East London, on 23 December 1888. His father’s family had possibly settled there from Jersey. By 1901, he was living with his widowed grandmother, Eliza Phillipps Ahier (née Cross), at 38 Antill Road.

Nothing is known of Ahier’s education, artistic or otherwise.
