Alfred Wilson Walsh
Alfred Wilson Walsh was born at Kyneton, Victoria, in 1859, but came to New Zealand with his people when they settled in Otago. His early years were spent as a draughtsman in the Public Works Department. Meanwhile he received instruction in drawing and painting from David Hutton and in 1886 he was appointed to the teaching staff of the Christchurch School of Art. He died at Tauranga in 1916. His most excellent works are his water colour paintings of New Zealand mountain and bush scenery.
