Biographical Account:

Southall  was born in Nottingham and started to draw whilst at school. Later, whilst working in an architectural firm, Southall took evening classes in art. After studying in France and Italy, Southall began working as an artist, gaining fame through his painting, rather than as an architect.


Throughout his life, Southall was influenced by Ruskin, the Pre Raphaelites and the Arts and Crafts movement. He also became involved with social politics.
