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.

Walter Cecil Horsnell was  born in Ware Hertfordshire UK in 1911 and died in Harrogate, Yorkshire, United Kingdom, in 1997.

He was known principally as a landscape painter in watercolours, oils and pastels.  He was an admirer of the French impressionists (notably Camille Pissaro) and this is very evident from his work.

He painted widely in the United Kingdom though he was best known in the county of Yorkshire where he made his home in the 1940's after WW2.  He became friendly with Dr Donald Coggan who was Archbishop of York in the 1960's and who subsequently became Archbishop of Canterbury.  He was invited to stay with the Coggans at Lambeth Palace where presumably some of his work produced during that visit, still hangs.
