Edgar Bundy 1862-1922
A fin de siecle British painter of great versatility, Edgar Bundy was in fact mostly self taught, although as a boy he spent a great deal of time in the studio of Alfred Stevens. A highly respected artist of his time, he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1881and at the Paris Salon from 1907.
Bundy painted mainly historical costume pieces, and his work is included in many important public and private collections. He painted The Landings of the Canadians in France 1915 for the Canadian War Memorial. Bundy’s paintings are characteristically full to the brim with painstaking detail – they must have taken a great deal of time to complete – and their subsequent narrative strength is very compelling.
