Biography of Artist

John Sargeant NOBLE

English School

1848 – 1896

Address: London 1880

               New Malden, Surrey 1890

Animal and sporting painter, who studied at the Royal Academy Schools and was a pupil of Landseer. He was patronised by Queen Victoria and Landseer did much to fashion the public perception of the romantic Highlands and to popularise the genre of animal painting, and Noble undoubtedly profited from being his pupil. He started to exhibit from the age of 18 at Suffolk Street and from 1871 at the Royal Academy.

Like his mentor Landseer he painted many studied in Scotland and such was his reputation that he was asked to paint many hounds and hunting scenery of the area. Such was his success that he was able to move from Peckham to the grand Harwood House in Surrey, via Hyde Park and then on to the suburbs of Shepherds Bush.

He became a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1872.
