Walter Charles Horsley

 

Walter Charles Horsley (1855 – 1921) made his debut at the Royal Academy where he continued to regularly exhibit up until 1911. Horsley gained considerable repute for his multi-figural genre scenes which likewise contain dramatic narrative, fine detailing, strong brushwork and are often tinged with humour. Unlike many contemporary Orientalists, Horsley viewed his subjects at first hand having travelled widely throughout India and Egypt as well as Turkey, Tangiers and Morocco.
