Biography

Neville Lytton was the grandson of the famed novelist, Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Born in India, he was educated at Eton and the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In World War I, Lytton served as an officer on the Western Front and fought at both the Somme and Amiens. The French government decorated him with the Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur. He was international amateur champion in jeu de paume (real tennis) in 1911-12, but he is best known as an artist, and from 1900-40 he exhibited his paintings at such venues as the Alpine Club Gallery, the Beaux-Arts Gallery, the Dowdeswell Galleries, the Walker Art Gallery (Liverpool), the New English Art Club, the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, and the London’s Royal Academy. He was elected an Associate of the Société Nationale de Beaux-Arts and exhibited his art there as well. Neville Lytton succeeded his brother as the 3rd Earl of Lytton in 1947 and he himself was succeeded by his son after his death in 1951.
