Lee Hankey was a British painter who worked equally effectively in both watercolour and oil. He specialised in landscapes, and portraits of pastoral life, and later in life painted many oils of scenes in Northern France. He was born in Chester and studied at the Royal College of Art. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1896 and was President of the London Sketch Club from 1902 to 1904. He stayed in France in the early 1900s, painting many of his works in Brittany and Normandy, where he continued to paint throughout his life. In Britain he had been associated with the Newlyn School, based in the titular village in Cornwall who were themselves influenced by the romantic poets such as Wordsworth and Keats
