Arthur Outlaw (1912-21)
Arthur Outlaw attended the Slade School of Art between 1912 and 1914, and again in 1919 and 1920, after active service in World War I. The University Collage, London, has two prize paintings by him in their collection: Male Figure Standing, 1914, oil on canvas (Figure Painting, second prize [equal], 1914), and Portrait of an Old Bearded Man, 1920 (Head Painting, second prize [equal], 1920). In 1922 Outlaw married and emigrated to Australia, after which little information appears about his career. His wife, Annie, is known to have become honorary secretary of the New South Wales Society of Arts and Crafts, and in 1941 she established Annan Fabrics, which received many prestigious commissions and exhibited internationally. In 1955 the business was forced into liquidation and the Outlaws returned to London.
