Beatrice How Art

1867-1932

Julia Beatrice How was a painter in oil and pastel of figure subjects, still lives and nudes. She was born into a well-known family of silversmiths in Bideford, Devon, and studied art under Hubert von Herkomer at Bushey and in Paris at the Académie Delécluse during the 1890s. How lived for much of her working life in France and exhibited there extensively, where her work was held in high regard. She was considered on par with Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt in France and America but was somewhat neglected in her country of origin. She exhibited two works at the Royal Academy in 1924 and another painting L’Infirmiere was shown there posthumously in 1936. How’s work is held in several public collections, especially in France, including Musée du Luxembourg, Paris; Musée d’Orsay, Paris; Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon; Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, England; Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow and Atkinson Art Gallery and Library, Southport. She died at Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire in 1932. A memorial exhibition of How's work was held in 1935 at the New Burlington Galleries in London. In 1979, The Fine Art Society held a major show of her work at their galleries in London and Edinburgh.
