Although born in London, Conder grew up and first went to art school in Australia. He moved to Paris in 1890. While living there in the 1890s he often stayed in Normandy, where he painted scenes of bathers and of the cliffs on the coast. He used clear colours, reminiscent of Boudin. He continued to paint the coast in Britain, but there was no market for these paintings, many of which were not exhibited until after his early death.
