William Walcot was born in 1874 and died in 1943. He was a British architect graphic artist and etcher, notable as a practitioner of refined Art Nouveau (Style Moderne) in Moscow, Russia.
In 1920s–1930s, he concentrated on graphic art and was praised as the best architectural draftsman in London.
In 1906, Walcot was employed as a draughtsman for the South African architect Eustace Frere. He rarely returned to practical construction, designing only one London building: 61 St James’s Street (1933). Rather, Walcot worked as an architectural draftsman, famous for his artistic presentation of other architects’ designs and exhibiting his own work at the Royal Academy summer exhibitions.
Walcot, along with contemporary Cyril Farey, was one of the most sought after English architectural illustrators of the 1920s and 30s. Walcot developed his own impressionistic style in gouache and watercolour which won numerous commissions from Edwin Lutyens, Herbert Baker and Aston Webb. He also engaged in printmaking, creating reconstructions of ancient Greek, Roman, Babylonian and Egyptian buildings. A folio of his work was published in 1919 as Architectural Watercolours and Etchings of William Walcot. He was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists in 1913, as an associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers in 1916 and a Fellow of the RIBA in 1922. He was also an associate of the British School at Rome.
His painting palette is preserved at the Royal Institute of British Architects. He had a retrospective exhibition at the Fine Arts Society in 1974.
He exhibited at RA, RHA, RSA, RSW, Fine Art Society.
Baron Fine Art gallery provide a very diverse range of high quality 19th - 21st Century Oil Paintings, Watercolours, Etchings and Sculptures.
