Herbert Menzies Marshall R.W.S. (1841-1913):
Educated at Westminster and Trinity College, Cambridge, Herbert Menzies Marshall was a topographical and architectural painter in watercolours. He studied at the Royal Academy Schools and, having won a travelling scholarship in 1868, continued his training in Paris. He exhibited from 1871 to 1893 and was elected an associate of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1871 and a full member in 1883. In 1904 he was appointed Professor of Landscape Painting at Queenâ€™s College, London. He exhibited widely between 1871 to 1893 and the Fine Art Society held an exhibition of his work in 1886. He travelled on the Continent and produced many views of French cathedral cities as well as English scenes. The London Thames and atmospheric London streets were favourite subjects.
