Eric Hesketh Hubbard was a landscape and architectural painter. He was also an accomplished etcher and furniture designer. He wrote over a dozen books on art including 'Colour Block Print Making', 'Architectural Painting in Oils' and '100 Years of British Painting'. He studied Art at the Westminster School of Art and later became interested in print making using the etching technique and subsequently wood and lino cutting. In 1930 he sponsored the funding of a drawing club connected to the Royal Society of British Artists, which was subsequently named the Hesketh Hubbard Society in his honour in 1957. It still meets in the Mall Galleries in St James's.
