A landscape painter who flourished between 1880 and 1920, and who because of his subject matter and signature on paintings as 'W Langley' has sometimes caused confusion - whether or not it was intended. At one point in his career he was actually gaoled for six months for attempting to pass off his work as that of Walter LANGLEY, and was told to cease and desist from the practice of signing his paintings in like fashion. He was no relation of Walter Langley, though he also came from Birmingham.
