William Thomas Wood (1877-1958)
Wood lived most of his life in London, and exhibited frequently. His work was extremely popular during his lifetime and he had a number of one-man shows at the Leicester Galleries as well as receiving nine official public purchases. He was elected an Associate to the Royal Watercolor Society (R.W.S.) in 1913, and became a full member in 1918. Largely as a result of his war experience, A.J. Mann hired Wood in 1920 to illustrate The Salonika Front. He served as Vice President of the R.W.S. from 1923-1926 and became a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (R.O.I.) in 1927. He died on June 2nd 1958.
