Arthur Trevor Haddon’s artistic training began in 1883 when he entered the Slade School where he was a pupil of Alphonse Legros (1837-1911) and continued in London where he studied with the eminent Royal Academician Sir Hubert Herkomer (1849-1914). Throughout his subsequent career Haddon travelled widely; living and worked in Asia and both North and South America, but it was his time in Spain and Italy that inspired his most popular and familiar subjects. Haddon’s paintings are typically full of young Mediterranean women going about their daily lives.
From 1883, Arthur Trevor Haddon exhibited at the Royal Academy and the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Royal Society of British Artists, of which organisation he was elected a full member in 1896.
