Walter Langley (June 8, 1852 – March 21, 1922)

A British painter, he was the founder of the Newlyn School of plein air artists.  Langley was noted for his social realist portrayals of working class figures, particularly fishermen and their families.  Until 1892 he mostly painted in watercolor.

Many of his paintings reflect his sympathy with the working class fisher-folk amongst whom he lived.  One of the best known is his 1883 For Men Must Work and Women Must Weep (City Museums and Art Gallery, Birmingham) based on Charles Kingsley's poem The Three Fishers (1851).
