Walter EMSLEY
exh 1883-1927; fl 1896-1900 (CW)

This artist exhibited what Wood describes as 'country scenes' at the RA in 1896, 1899 and 1900. His original sending-in address had been in Manchester (1883), and this was given again in 1899. However, between those years he gave an address in Bushey, Herts (in 1896) indicating study there also.  He is known to have painted Cornish subjects, notably Polperro in 1908.

Whether or not he spent much time in the county is as yet unknown, but he exhibited mainly at Manchester (30).
