Born Albert Henry Lock in London, Anton Lock was a “noted painter, illustrator, etcher and wood engraver, who exhibited widely in the UK and France.” He studied under Walter Sickert at the Westminster School of Art and lithography at Bolt Court from 1910 to 1914. He illustrated several books with outdoor and hunting scenes, and exhibited at the Royal Academy, Royal Watercolour Society, Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Paris Salon, with one-man shows at the Leger Galleries. Much of his work was on pastoral themes and featured horses. He also provided work for the Amalgamated Press’ nursery comics. Lock is said to have “played up to the image of the artist: as well as adopting the name ‘Anton’; he wore a smock and beret and behaved temperamentally.” Lock’s work is represented in the British Museum and the British Council.
