The British painter and illustrator is best known for his socially critical works. This engagement is no coincidence, his grandmother Mary Fildes was known as an activist and campaigned for women's rights as president of the Manchester Female Reform Society. The effects of industrialization not only had a lasting impact on the country, but also had a significant influence on the artist's work. Fildes successfully used his talent to draw attention to problems of the time.

Samuel Luke Fildes grew up in the late Victorian era, when London in particular saw the impact of the final stage of industrialization. This was especially visible on the streets. Hunger, poverty and death were omnipresent - topics that are often reflected in Filde's art. The Liverpool-born artist made London his new home at 17 to attend South Kensington Art School. There he met Hubert von Herkomer and Frank Holl. All three artists found inspiration in the work of Frederick Walker, the pioneer of the British Socialist Realism movement. Fildes believed above all in the power of the image and joined the editorial team of the weekly social magazine "The Graphic" as an illustrator, led by social reformer William Luson Thomas. His black and white illustrations were also popular on the continent. The situation in the English capital remained the central theme of his work in the eyes of an international audience. Writer Charles Dickens was also a great admirer of Filde's work. Through the Pre-Raphaelite John Everett Millais, the author became aware of Filde's talent and eye for social injustices. Dickens was so impressed with Filde's work on the newly adopted Houseless Poor Act that he immediately commissioned an illustration for "The Secret of Edwin Droods". The novel remained unfinished after the author's sudden death.

Fildes quickly became known for his socially critical illustrations and completely retired from work for print media in 1870. He now devoted himself exclusively to oil painting and made a name for himself as one of the most capable artists of his generation. In 1887, Fildes was officially recognized as a Royal Academician by the Royal Academy and was knighted by King George VII in 1906. He married Fanny Woods, also an artist and sister of the Neo-Venetian painter Henry Woods. Filde's first son died of typhoid at an early age, a subject that he dealt with in 1891 with the picture "The Doctor". The suffering of the poor plays a central role in his works, but portraits and pictures that show life in Venice also demonstrate Filde's talent and eye for details. © Meisterdrucke
