Arthur Studd (1863 - 1919)

Painter and collector born at Hallerton Hall, Leicestershire. From a monied background he was, all his life of independent means. Studd (known as “Peter”) read history at King's College, Cambridge, 1884–87 where his peers included Roger Fry. He went on to study art under Legros at the Slade School 1888–89, and at the Académie Julian, Paris, 1889. He visited Le Pouldu in Brittany, 1890, where he befriended Gauguin and De Haan. Although strongly influenced by Gauguin, his style changed after he had worked with Whistler 1892-95. Visited Samoa and Tahiti about 1898.

They painted together at Lyme Regis, Dorset and in Dieppe. The subdued tone and limited range of colour of Studd's landscapes were greatly influenced by those of Whistler. Studd, a serious collector
