William Lionel Wyllie (1851-1931) had first-hand knowledge of the River Thames. He sailed its length from London to the sea and painted, drew and etched most of its features &endash; its craft, people and landscape. Wyllie was born into a family of artists in 1851. The rather bohemian family spent their summers on the coast of northern France. Wyllie recalled the journey by steamer down the crowded Thames from London on their way to Boulogne.When he was about 12 he went to art school in London, and in 1866 he started at the Royal Academy Schools. In 1869 he won the Turner Gold Medal for landscape.In 1870 one of the first pictures he exhibited at the Royal Academy was London from the Monument, a panoramic view of the city and the river and he began working as an illustrator of maritime subjects for The Graphic magazine.He had to reproduce detail accurately in black and white, and this discipline probably influenced him when he began making etchings in the early 1880s.Wyllie's first known etching, made in 1884, is Toil, glitter, grime and wealth on a flowing tide. It was commissioned by the print publisher Robert Dunthorne.Wyllie's Thames pictures led him to be elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1889. By 1907, when he became a Royal Academician, he had moved to a house at the entrance of Portsmouth Harbour. He had largely turned to painting naval and historical subjects. When Wyllie died in Portsmouth in 1931, he was the country's most famous marine painter. He was known for: * his paintings of the Navy* his late work, the Panorama of the Battle of Trafalgar* his watercolours* his drypoint etchings. Lt.Col.
