'Parish Church of St James, Bushey' by James Charles Oldmeadow

For over 200 years, many hundreds of artists have been based in or near Bushey, either as part of the many local Schools or in local artistic communities. The most famous school is Herkomer’s Art School established by Hubert von Herkomer in 1883. Below is a list of some 590 students from Herkomer's Art School from 1883 to 1900. In 1905 Lucy Kemp-Welch, a key student of Herkomer, started her Bushey School of Painting which was located in Art School buildings established by Herkomer. She specialised in 'Figure and Animal Painting from the Living Model'.
