Albert Henry Lock (Anton); 1893-1979; Painter, book illustrator, etcher and wood engraver, Albert was a pupil of Walter Sickert at the Westminster School of Art and later at the Bolt Court School of Lithography. Like his contemporaries, Edmund Blampied and Nicolson, he featured the workhorse as a popular subject. He lived in London and exhibited in the U.K. and Paris, Royal Academy, the Royal Watercolour Society and the Pastel Society. His passion for recording the draught horse in all its various roles came about during a period when these noble horses, because of mechanisation were disappearing from the English landscape.
