Philip Connard was a prolific painter of landscapes, portraits, murals and decorative interiors. He won a scholarship to the Royal College of Art and in 1898 a British Institution Prize which enabled him to study in Paris. During the First World War, Connard was a Captain in the Royal Artillery. After becoming injured, he spent the remainder of his service as an Official War Artist to the Navy. From the 1930s, Connard lived in Richmond. The area's surrounding landscapes became the subject of his subsequent work in watercolour. Connard taught at the Lambeth College of Art.
