Lucy Kemp Welch was born in Bournemouth and made a reputation as a horse painter. Lucy studied under Herkomer at Bushey. She was eager to pursue a role as a war artist during the First World War but encountered much rejection due to the fact that she was female. An early poster she produced for the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee did however become very popular. Although the cavalry were fast becoming outmoded, horses remained important for hauling guns and supplies and maintaining communications in the worst conditions.
