Lewis Pinhorn WOOD
Lewis Pinhorn Wood (1848–1918) was a British landscapist and watercolourist, best known for his rural scenes of Sussex and Surrey. In the
tradition of the Victorian era, his work depicted idyllic scenes of rural life across the home counties.
Born in Middlesex in 1848, his father was Lewis John Wood (1813–1901), the 19th-century architectural artist and lithographer renowned
principally for his specialisation in architectural scenes from across Belgium and Northern France. In 1875, he married Louisa Howard Watson
in the church of St Saviour in Hampstead, Middlesex. They had four children; the illustrator and designer Clarence Lawson Wood (1878–1957),
Eveline, Esmond and Enid.
In early married life Pinhorn Wood lived and worked at Burnside in the village of Shere, Surrey, before moving to Highgate, London, and latterly
to Homefield Road in Chiswick. In later life he lived in Pevensey, Sussex, where he registered as a member of the Sussex Archaeological Society in
1910, and died on 7 November 1918.
