Maxwell Gordon Lightfoot (1886-1911) - Male Figure Standing. Oil on canvas, 91.5 x 61 cm. 1909.
Maxwell Gordon Lightfoot (July 1886 – September 1911), was the second son in a family of five children. His family moved to Helsby in Cheshire and in 1901, Lightfoot, aged fifteen, began his art training at Chester Art School. In 1905 the family moved back to Liverpool and Lightfoot attended evening classes at the Sandon Studios which were then under the directorship of Gerard Chowne (1875–1917), a flower painter in the style of the French artist Henri Fantin-Latour, and J. Herbert McNair (1868–1955), one of the ‘Glasgow Four’ (along with his wife Frances MacDonald, her sister Margaret, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh). Around the same time Lightfoot was able to employ his talents for drawing and design as an apprenticed chromolithographer.
Lightfoot cherished greater ambitions beyond a career designing seed advertisements so, following Chowne’s advice, in 1907, aged twenty-one, he moved to London to study at the Slade School of Fine Art, the training ground for so many of the British art leading figures (C.R.W. Nevinson, Stanley Spencer, Edward Wadsworth and Mark Gertler) of at that time.
Despite the high standard of competition from his peers, Lightfoot was clearly able to hold his own as one of the most talented draughtsmen of his year. In 1909 he was awarded first prizes in figure painting, head painting, painting from the cast and the Summer Composition Competition, and also second prize in figure drawing. On leaving the Slade in 1910, Lightfoot formed a reputation as a talented painter with an idiosyncratic style and subject matter. He became particularly fond of the effects of brown ink, creating dramatic, slightly sinister sepia illustrations of figures.
The theme of mother and child came to dominate his art and he produced a number of paintings of this subject which are sensitive and well-observed portraits. During the same year Lightfoot began to gain some public recognition. He exhibited in the black and white section of the Liverpool Autumn Exhibition and showed three landscapes at the Winter Exhibition of the New English Art Club.
It was probably these landscapes that caught the attention of Spencer Gore who subsequently introduced him to the circle of artists who showed their work at 19 Fitzroy Street. Although he does not seem to have participated much in their Saturday afternoon ‘At Homes’, Lightfoot was also invited to become one of the original sixteen members of the Camden Town Group. After the exhibition, Lightfoot resigned from the group and his place was later taken up by Duncan Grant.
The memory of Lightfoot’s art and career has been overshadowed by the sensation of his premature and tragic death. In December 1910 he had met. Apparently the emotional strain of seeing Lilian Kate Thompson, an artists’ model he had been engaged with a few months earlier been disapproved by his parents and friends, proved too much for him and on 27 September 1911, he cut his throat with a razor and died of his injuries at the age of twenty-five. Despite the fact that he was supposedly preparing for an exhibition of his work to be held at the Carfax Gallery, no paintings were found in his studio after his death and it is possible that Lightfoot destroyed them all before killing himself. His obituary in the Times on 2 October 1911 mourned the loss of a gifted painter who ‘showed extraordinary promise of a brilliant future’.
