Edward William Rainford was active/lived in United Kingdom.  

Biography   Edward Rainford


Little is known about Edward William Rainford’s career but he was an artist of considerable talent.  It is likely that he had contact with the original members of the PRB as in 1850 he had a studio at Charlotte Street close to Millais’ home. 

He only exhibited three pictures at the Royal Academy illustrating a scene from As You Like It.  Of his known works, at least two more were of  Shakespearean subjects, his first exhibit at the Academy in 1850 was a scene from Cymbeline.  Hotspur and the Courtier was exhibited at the British Institution in 1852 (Christie’s, 19 February 2003, lot 37).
