Joseph Webb was a printmaker, muralist and teacher of etching and sculpture. Born in 1908 in Ealing, West London, Webb studied at Ealing and Chiswick Schools of Art and in 1925 won a scholarship to the Patrick Allan-Fraaser School of Art, Hospitalfield, Arbroath, Scotland. He began etching in 1927, returned to London in 1928 and taught etching under Hubert Schroder at Chiswick and with F. L. Griggs in Chipping Camden in 1929. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, of which he was made an associate in 1930, the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Hiberian Academy and at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. He taught etching and scuplture at Chiswick School of Art. His work was influenced by Samuel Palmer, Graham Sutherland and Robin Tanner. He abandoned printmaking in 1950 and no longer exhibited. He lived at Wembley, Middlesex and Farnham Common, Buckingham and died in London in 1962. The work of Joseph Webb is regarded by many as the last flowering of the Griggs, and Palmer tradition.
