Biography and current catalogue for

George Grosvenor Thomas RSW (1856-1923) 

Born in Sydney, New South Wales he came to England as a young man and began painting when he came to Glasgow in 1885/6 and he met members of the Glasgow Boys. He painted both in oils and watercolours, landscapes and flower pieces and his work is influenced by Corot, Daubigny and the Barbizon School. On the continent he won gold medals at both Munich and Dresden. Although he lived in London and was a frequent overseas traveller, he is regarded as a peripheral member of the Glasgow Boys.
Elected RSW in 1892, he exhibited at RSA, RA, RSW, GI and L and overseas, and is represented in the Glasgow, Budapest and Weimar Art Galleries.
