Claud Lovat Fraser (1890-1921), English artist, designer and author, trained at the Westminster School of Art where his tutors included Walter Sickert and from here he found an influential friend and supporter in the art critic Haldane MacFall. Through MacFall he also gained an introduction to the Actor Manager Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree, proprietor of His Majesty's Theatre in Haymarket. Tree in turn, at MacFall's instigation, commissioned him to supply the illustrations for Thoughts and Afterthoughts, his volume of reminiscences; Fraser became more and more acquainted with the theatre world, marrying the American born actress, Grace Inez Crawford and her career interests contributed to Fraser's increased involvement in theatre and costume design. He saw considerable active service during World War I and it was felt this undermined his long term health and contributed to his early death, aged only 31.
