Original works of art

William Joseph Shayer
(English, 1811 -1891 )

Shayer was a landscape and animal painter. A self-taught artist, he lived in Southampton, and painted mostly in Hampshire and the New Forest. His work falls into two distinct categories: firstly, woodland scenes with gypsies, rustic figures and animals and secondly, beach or coastal scenes with boats and fisherfolk. He was a prolific artist, and tended to repeat certain formulae. Exhibited mostly at Suffolk Street (338 works), also at Royal Academy 1820-1943, and British Institution. His work is in many English provincial museums. He sometimes collaborated with Edward Charles Williams. His son William J. Shayer was also a painter.
