Famine 1904

John Charles Dollman RWS RI ROI (6 May 1851 – 11 December 1934) was an English painter and illustrator. He was born in Hove on 6 May 1851 and moved to London to study at South Kensington and the Royal Academy Schools, after which he set up a studio at Bedford Park, London, designed for him by Maurice Bingham Adams.[1] He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1870 to 1912, and was elected RWS (Member of the Royal Watercolour Society) in 1913. 

Some people read this haunting painting as a starvation of the human body, with its vision of a shrouded death surrounded by hungry wolves. The artist, however, intended it to portray a famine of human spirit, or death of the soul after its neglect.

The painting is now part of the permanent collection and on display in the Victorian Gallery at Salford Museum & Art Gallery
