Biography  
Walter Osborne


Walter Frederick Osborne (1859-1903)

One of the top Irish exponents of Impressionism, and Post-Impressionism, although he died before achieving his full potential as an artist, his early works were outdoor paintings of rural scenes.  These were followed by a series of Impressionistic figure paintings focusing on subjects like women, small children and old people. His works remain in great demand by art-collectors.

Walter Frederick Osborne, the son of William Osborne another artist, was born in Dublin, in 1859.  Taught drawing and painting by his father, he studied figure drawing at the Academie Royale des Beaux Arts in Antwerp. While at Antwerp he won the prestigious Irish Taylor Prize in 1881 and again in 1882.
