Biography:

Arthur Willmore (1814–1888)

Wilmore was born at Birmingham on 6 June 1814, brother of James Tibbitts Willmore, by whom he was trained. He became an engraver, excelling chiefly in landscape work. He was extensively employed and executed many plates for the ‘Art Journal’ from pictures by Collins, Cooke, Creswick, Rubens, Stanfield, Turner, Van Dyck, and others. His most important work was ‘The Return of the Lifeboat,’ after E. Duncan, engraved for the Art Union, 1878. Willmore frequently exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1858 and 1885.

He died on 3 Nov. 1888.
