Claude Shepperson was born in Kent, in 1867. He studied in Paris and in London under Sir Frank Short. His work appeared in Punch, between 1905 – 20, with an increasing emphasis on fashionable society. He was one of the finest illustrators of his day as this work – a very fine example of his watercolours – shows. He was the subject of a memorial show at the Leicester Galleries in 1922.
His work is represented in the collections of the British Museum, Tate and the V&A.
