Dr Walter Fell, M.A., M.D. (Oxon.) was born in Nelson, New Zealand in 1855, and educated at Rugby and at University College, Oxford, where he took his degree. He came back to New Zealand about 1884 to take up a medical practice in Wellington. He was always interested in art but only began to paint in middle life and had no training whatever. He was for many years on the Council of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and he was an indefatigable worker.
