Before becoming an artist and teacher of animal drawings for L C C School of Arts and Crafts, Cuthbert Swan had been a sailor and a scene painter.
He specialised in animal working in oils, watercolours and pastels to produce his paintings and, despite working in India for a while, spent most of his life in Hampstead. He became a member of the Feline School.
He exhibited 66 times in England at the Royal Academy (from 1893) and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters plus others at the Paris Salon, with titles such as “Bagheera, the black Panther”, "Duke - a study of a lion"; "Jaguars at Play" and "Puma and cubs". His brother Edwin was a portrait painter.
Examples of his work can be seen in Birmingham Museum –“Tiger and Prey”, “Bury Art Museum – “Leopard Cubs” and Lladudno Museum which has seven works including “Otter Hounds” and “Leopard”.
