Artist of the moment……..Stephen Bone




Stephen Bone was an English artist renown for his landscape paintings and woodcut prints. Stephen Bone was born in  Chiswick, London in the 1904.

Bone attended the Slade School of Fine Art located in London, England. His father was an Scottish artist who worked as an etcher and watercolor painter. His father was Sir Muirhead Bone. His father liked to paint works dealing with architecture.

Bone worked in a position that his father held previously, working as a full time salaried war time painter whose specialty was admiral and naval scenes.

In this clip we view a montage of works over Stephen Bone’s career:

Bone married another artist named Mary Adshead. The couple illustrated two children’s books. His wife also designed stamps. The couple had three children.

Stephen Bone passed away from cancer complications in 1958 at the age of 53 years of age.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

The artist is part of the Tate Museum collection.

Bone comes from a wonderful family of artists. Next up will be his father, Sir Muirhead Bone. What is so interesting is that you have Muirhead Bone, Stephen Bone, and Mary Adshead (Stephen’s wife) who all paint the same subject matter, war and naval scenes.

What a great use of perspective in his paintings of submarines.
