Robert John Hammond was a landscape painter born in Blackfriars, London in 1853. By the time he was 18 he had moved to Sutton Coldfield where he initially became an apprentice watchmaker before becoming a full time artist. In 1871, he married Lucy Banner, the sister of the artist Alfred Banner (1860-1914) at Kings Norton, Worcestershire. They lived at 90 Kyrwicks Lane, Bordesley in Birmingham before moving to 467 Moseley Road, Balsall Heath.
Hammond became well known for his landscapes and rural scenes of the surrounding countryside but also travelled further afield to Bristol, Bournemouth and Sheffield as well as Scotland and Wales. His son Horace Hammond (1879-1966) became a lithographer and landscape artist who used the pseudonyms of A D Bell and J Barclay.
He exhibited widely between 1882-1911 at the Royal Society of Artist, Birmingham as well as at the Manchester City Art Gallery. Hammondís paintings show a pre-Raphaelite influence, particularly in his rendering of the landscape and use of colours. Often depicting cottages and rosy cheeked children at play they served as a reminder of a life far removed from the emerging industrial cities of the time. Towards the end of his life he lived at 3 Walford Road in Aston.
An example of his work can be found at the Birmingham Museum.
Presentation: The paintings are housed in new, English made gilt frames which are in excellent condition.
Condition: As with all of our original antique oil paintings, these works are offered in ready to hang gallery condition, having been professionally cleaned, restored and revarnished.
