William Shayer (1787-1879) 

William Joseph Shayer began by painting decorations on rush-bottom chairs, and moved on to painting carriages in the town of Guildford, after which he started doing heraldic painting. Ultimately he began painting oil on canvas and became skilled at portraying woodland scenes with gypsies, people and animals in front of country inns and farm houses, and beach scenes crowded with boats and fishermen. Augustus Ennes was born in Bocking, Essex. Studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and at the Academie Julian in Paris. Elected RBA in 1925. Prolific exhibitor, showing at ROI, Fine Art Society as well as RA, Ridley Art Club and Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
