Cyril Edward Power
Cyril Edward Power is not the first deceased artist I have mentioned on this blog, but I believe he is the first to get a post to himself. Born in 1872 in Chelsea, he was encouraged to draw from an early age by his artist father, Edward William Power. Cyril was a talented architect, being awarded the Sloane Medallion by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1900, and I think this knowledge is an important facet of his art. The image above, The Tube Station, was done in 1925 which was the same year as Power co-founded The Grosvenor School Of Modern Art in London. Cyril Power died in 1951 aged 78.
