Lilian Cheviot (1876 – 1936, British)

Lilian Cheviot (1876 – 1936, British) is known primarily for her dog paintings; however, she painted other animals such as horses, tigers and cats. Her paintings resemble the style of the German artist Julius Adam.

Born and raised in South Molesey in Surrey, she attended Frank Calderon’s School of Animal Painting and Walter Donne’s Life School. In 1895, she exhibited her painting There’s Many a Slip at the Royal Academy of Arts, and in 1899 she exhibited Kittens.

Unfortunately, not much else is known about her life; however, Lilian Cheviot works are still popular today and are sold for tens of thousands of pounds.
