Ernest Borough Johnson was born in Shifnal, Shropshire in December 1866. He studied at the Slade School under Alphonse Legros.. Not only did he paint in oils and watercolours, but was also an important lithographer, etcher and illustrator. He also learnt under Herkomer's at Bushey, and subsequently became Professor of Fine Art at London University's Bedford College and Chelsea Polytechnic respectively.

He was a teacher of life painting and drawing at London School of Art and the Byam Shaw School. Married to the artist Ester George, by 1917 he lived at Westbourne Gardens, Hyde Park, London.

His work was exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1887 and 1892, and he was elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1896 and a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in 1906. Also exhibiting at the Paris Salon, Johnson received an Honourable Mention in 1922 and a silver medal in 1923.

They both exhibited in the 1924 Show Day in St Ives, with Johnson showing several fine oils, charcoals and pencil studies. According to the St Ives Times, one was 'a busy scene on the Wharf in the fishing season, with girls packing the fish, and a cart loaded with barrels on its way.'

He also showed a portrait of Mr MATSUBAYASHI in Samurai costume, with a bright red background.

By the 1930s he was distinguished as a writer on techniques of drawing.
