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.

Born in the village of Lumbutts, near Todmorden, (a town in which in those days lay astride the border of Lancashire & Yorkshire).

A painter in oil colors, (of genre, portraits, biblical subjects, landscapes and angling scenes), etcher and engraver. 

He was the son of enlightened parents, Cordwainer, William Bayes (1799-1851) and Hannah (nee Uttley, 1788-1856) who formed their own school and museum in a purpose built building behind their house in Lumbutts.  Hannah was a schoolteacher at this school and in 1851, when he was 19, Alfred also taught at Lumbutts School.  (The Board School was not in existance at Lumbutts until 1878).

In order to advance his artistic career, Alfred Bayes moved to London where he attended Heatherleys Art School, paying his way by making illustrations notably for the Dalziel brothers to engrave.  He produced 290 drawings for the Complete Illustrated Stories of Hans Christian Anderson.

He exhibited in the Royal Academy (1858-1908), the British Institution (1859-1867), & the Society of British Artists & the New Watercolour Society. In 1900 he was elected as a Member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers.
