Harry Bush

ARTIST

Bush, Harry

1883 – 1957

Painter, born in Brighton, Sussex. In 1900 he joined the Victualling Department of the Admiralty but left four years later to join Carlton Studios, Chelsea, where he worked under Fred Taylor, the poster and watercolour artist. He later studied at Regent Street Polytechnic and in 1922 he began exhibiting at the RA. He was an elected member of the ROI and also showed at the RWA, RSA and the Paris Salon. Bush lived at 19 Queensland Avenue, Merton Park, SW19, in a custom-built house with a studio at the top. The house was purchased in 1911 for Bush’s wife, Noel Nisbet, a noted watercolourist of mythical, medievalist scenes. Harry Bush became known as the ‘Painter of the Suburbs’ owing to the remarkably evocative series of views in and around his home in Merton which were exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1922-54. A studio sale of his work was held at Christie’s, London, in September 1984. His work is represented in the collection of Melbourne Art Gallery, Australia.
