Hubert Lindsay Wellington was born in Gloucester, the eldest of two boys. He studied at the School of Art in 1895-1898, then at Birmingham School of Art in 1898-99 and the Slade School of Fine Art in 1899-1900.
His first one man show was held by Agnews in 1963, and Abbott and Holder had a show of his landscape paintings in 1996. He also exhibited at New English Arts Club and the Royal Academy (where this particular painting was shown in 1946 – label verso).
The Tate Gallery holds one of his many early Cotswold scenes and a work is held by Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.
