Isaac Snowman Back

Isaac Snowman was born in Palestine in 1874 , but had moved to London by 1893 where he exhibited his first painting at the royal academy, Tales of a Grandfather. At the time he was living in Euston road but two years later once he begun to paint portaits, he moved to St Johns Wood, the most fashionable neighborhood for artists at the end of the century. Snowman moved once more in 1898, when he set up a studio on fortune Green Road in the West Hampstead, an affluent enclave for the Jewish colony of London, and he remained at that residence for the next ten years.
His paintings of children and elegantly- dressed women are wholly Englishin both conception and execution, and are closely linked with the work of Arthur John Elsley and Frederick Morgan
