|Description||Bishopsthorpe Palace is the home of the Archbishops of York since 1226. The gothic gatehouse was designed by Thomas Atkinson in 1763-5.
Rushbury was born in Harbourne, near Birmingham and studied at Birmingham School of Art, 1903-9, where he concentrated on mural painting and stained glass design. He later studied for a short time under Henry Tonks at the Slade School of Fine Art. Before moving to London Rushbury had assisted Henry Payne to decorate Madresfield Court, near Great Malvern. Francis Dodd persuaded Rushbury to try engraving and etching and thereafter he concentrated on architectural type subjects. He became an Official War Artist during World War I, a role he repeated in World War II. Rushbury’s first one-man show was at the Grosvenor Gallery in 1921 and he also showed as such venues as the Royal Academy, Royal Watercolour Society and Fine Art Society. He was elected Royal Academician in 1936, became keeper of the Royal Academy 1949-64 and was knighted in 1964. He lived in Lewes, Sussex. The Tate Gallery holds examples of his work.
