Herbert Edward Powell (1871 - 1940)

Powell was a painter and photolithographer in Adelaide, South Australia. He was an important member of the South Australian Society of Arts. Born in Adelaide, son of baker William Powell, for whom Powell's Corner, Kent Town, was named. He was a student at the School of Design 1887–1900 under H. P. Gill, gaining several diplomas from the South Kensington Art School. He joined the Public Service in 1887 working in the Government photolithography department under Alfred Vaughan until succeeding him as Government photolithographer in 1921. The photolithographic department was responsible for production of much of the South Australian photographic resources used by the Education Department, Tourist Bureau and other departments. He was a member of Gill's exclusive but short-lived Adelaide Art Circle, which folded in 1892 when many of its members joined the South Australian Society of Arts in order to bring it back to life. Three of its members (Gill, W. K. Gold and Powell) were elected president, secretary and treasurer respectively.
