(clarifies that this is correct spelling, noting Coward always spelled it incorrectly.)] (November 5, 1879-1915) was an English painter, bohemian and pederastic homosexual. Born in Clapham of a landed gentry family, he studied at art college. A successful artist, he was acquainted with London society and was a friend of Robbie Ross, patron of the arts and Oscar Wilde's intimate.

Beginning in 1913, he had an affair with Noel Coward, whom he had met through Coward's mother, who charred for him. Shortly before his 1915 death from tuberculosis, he extracted a promise from his friend, Mrs. Astley-Cooper, to look after the boy ("take Noël Coward home with you, he is delicate and wants taking care of"), and she took him under her protection.
