Waterlow, Ernest Albert (1850-1919) by Scholes, Robert

Ernest Albert Waterlow (1850 – 1919) The landscape artist E. A. Waterlow was born in London, and encouraged in his early interest in sketching because his parents thought art was a suitable profession for their rather sickly child. He studied at Carey’s School of Art, then spent a period abroad in Switzerland and Germany, developing an interest in landscape painting. His Galway Gossips—showing a passing rider chatting to a farmer with Irish highlands behind—was bought under the terms of the Chantrey Bequest for the national collection in 1887.
