    Herbert Wilson Foster was born in Endon, Staffordshire, on 18 January 1848. He attended Hanley School of Art, later moving to London and travelling to Belgium and France. Foster also worked as a porcelain painter, working at one point on the tile panels in the Victoria & Albert Museum. His paintings were frequently exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1873 and 1899, mainly focusing on portraits and rural village scenes. In 1893, he accepted a teaching position at the Nottingham School of Art, where his pupils included Dame Laura Knight and Harold Knight. Upon his death in 1929, the Head Teacher of the school, Mr J Else, wrote in his obituary in the Nottingham Evening Post that 'Mr Foster was one of the most distinguished life masters in the country. He was certainly the best man we have ever had in that time.'
