William Logsdail was an English painter active during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He painted portraits, still life, history and genre subjects, but was known in particular for his beautiful portrayals of London and Venice, many of which were panted on location.
His rich, textural evocations of streets and buildings often feel saturated with atmosphere and light. They are also built on a solid understanding of architecture, one of Logsdail’s early interests and almost his career.
