Harry Epworth Allen

"Harry Epworth Allen (27 November 1894 – 25 March 1958)was an English painter. He was one of the twentieth century's most distinctive interpreters of landscape.

H. E. Allen was born at 20, Kirkstall Road, in the Hunter's Bar district of Sheffield, England,. The city would remain his home for the rest of his life. His father was Henry Allen, a steel mark maker, and his mother Elizabeth Epworth Akllen (née Blacktin). Epworth was the maiden name of Elizabeth's mother, who was also called Elizabeth.

Allen showed remarkable artistic talent from an early age and in 1902 won third prize for pen and ink drawing in an art studentship competition run by the Sheffield Weekly Independent. Between 1907 and 1911 he attended the King Edward VII School in Sheffield, where he obtained a Lower School Certificate Prize for his class distinctions in Arithmetic, Scripture and English.

In 1911 he began work as a clerk in the steel works owned by Arthur Balfour and in 1912 he enrolled at the Sheffield Technical School of Art."
