History / Biographical Note

Biographical Note

Stephen Haweis (1878-1969), youngest son of the Reverend Hugh Reginald and Mary Eliza Haweis, a socially prominent couple in late Victorian London who entertained at their house in Cheyne Walk (previously owned by Dante Gabrielle Rossetti). Stephen studied art in Paris with Alphonse Mucha and Eugene Carriè€re. After becoming interested in photography, Stephen met Rodin and subsequently photographed many of the sculptor's pieces. In 1903 he married the poet Mina Loy (they were divorced in 1917). After losing much of his inheritance in the stock market crash of 1929, Stephen moved to the West Indian island of Dominica, where he studied and painted tropical fish, wrote for local newspapers, and worked on a variety of writing projects till his death.
