Stephen Samuel Lewin was born in Boston, Lincolnshire in 1848, the son of the architect Stephen Lewin (1823-1913). He initially worked as a clerk for his uncle’s timber business and then a builders merchant before becoming an artist.
Lewin married Florence Harris Hill in 1874 with whom he had 3 children. He travelled to Europe on a number of occasions to paint, taking his family with him. He is known to have exhibited in Belgium and two of his children were born in Germany, one in 1882 and one in 1885.
By 1891, Lewin had become a successful artist exhibiting at the Royal Academy, Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. He specialised in historical works often featuring Cavaliers and figures in 17th century costumes similar to Edgar Bundy. His paintings display his great talent for draughtsmanship and eye for detail. The family lived in Hammersmith at 8 St Paul’s Studios on the Talgarth Road, before moving to the Bath Road in Chiswick. Lewin died in Brentford in 1909.
Examples of his work can be found at the Nuneaton Museum, Sheffield Museum, Towneley Hall Art Gallery.
The painting is housed in its original gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
