Keith Baynes was born in 1887 near Reigate, Surrey. He attended Cambridge University but did not complete his degree because of health problems. He left the UK in 1907 and spent two years in Jamaica to recover from his illness.
In 1912 he entered the Slade School of Fine Art in London and during World War I met up with Walter Sickert. After the war he became a member of the circle around the painter Roger Fry. He exhibited with the London Artists’ Association, New England Art Club and with the London Group from 1919. He was also friends with the Bloomsbury Group, including Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. A number of his paintings today hang inside Charleston House. In 1969 he held a major retrospective of his work at the Minories, Colchester.
