John Lloyd Strevens (1902-1990)

John Lloyd Strevens was born in London. Although Strevens completed prints, watercolours and drawings, he was mainly a painter in oil with a rich palette, rather in the manner of John Singer Sargent and Philip Wilson Steer.
Strevens painted formal portraits but was especially noted for his pictures of women, flowers and interiors.
His work was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, and the Paris Salon, where he gained an Honourable Mention.

He had several one-man exhibitions in England, Spain and widely throughout the U.S.
The Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston, holds his work.

A retrospective exhibition was held at Epping Forest District Museum in 1991.
