PERCY TARRANT (d. 1934) painted figurative and genre subjects as well as contributing to several periodicals such as The Illustrated London News, The Quiver, Cassell's Family Magazine and The Graphic. He exhibited at several London galleries, including the Royal Academy, and lived in South London for many years before moving to Leatherhead and then to Gomshall in Surrey. His daughter, Margaret Winifred Tarrant was born in 1888 and due in part to his encouragement she followed in his footsteps by becoming an artist and a very successful illustrator.
