More information about the artist below:
William Joseph Boyes, believed born in 1847, was a watercolour painter who lived in the Bradford area all his life. He was a founder and active Council member of the Yorkshire Union of Artists (YUA) and taught art at a range of local institutions, including Bradford Technical College, the Bradford Church Institute, Batley Grammar School and at Thornton Grammar School.
He painted predominantly landscape, often local scenes, in a pastoral style popular in the late 19th & early 20th centuries. He exhibited work at YUA shows in the region, particularly between 1888-1909, and Cartwright Hall showed one of his works, ‘Old English Cottage’, in their 1951 Festival of Britain art exhibition.
