This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Steeple lived in Birmingham and found his subjects in Wales, the Midlands and Sussex.  His work is usually in the tradition of David Cox Snr., and can sometimes show affinities with the Glasgow School.
John Steeple (1823-1887) exhibited at the Royal Academy (of Arts) between 1852-79, the Society of British Artists (SS), the New Society of Painters in Watercolours (NWS) and elsewhere.
He painted landscapes and coastal scenes and lived in Birmingham and London. Pictures he exhibited at the Royal Academy include The Ford: A Scene on the Dee(1852), Mountain and Moorland, N. Wales (1874), and Curfew (1879).
There is also a watercolour in the Victoria and Albert Museum titled Squally Weather on the Welsh Coast (1862).
He was also a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours (formerly NWS) and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, where he exhibited on a regular basis.  
Over the last 10-15 years his paintings have sold for between £600 and £1600 pounds.
