Lucy Kemp-Welch (1869 - 1958)


 

Lucy Kemp-Welch was a wonderful painter of horses. She was famous for illustrating Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. I can find very few examples of her work on the internet but a few can be viewed at http://www.busheymuseum.org/lk-w.php and http://store.encore-editions.com/artist/lucywelch.html and http://www.tate.org.uk/servlet/ArtistWorks?cgroupid=999999961&artistid=1397&page=1. The last shows examples of gun carriages - she even painted battle scenes. My grandfather James Hastings Lightbody was a horseman in the war and accompanied the gun carriages, although as an officer he had his own horse.
