Samuel Walters 1811-1882

Samuel Walters was born at sea. By 1834 he had set up as a marine painter with a studio in his father’s picture framing premises. Walters moved his family to London in 1845 but returned to Livrepool where he prospered by capitalising on the city’s great shipping boom.

His works were exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1842 and 1861, many of these were general coastal subjects.
