William Duffield




William Duffield (1816 - 1863) was a still life painter who was born in Bath 1816. At first, a self taught artist, Duffield moved to London and studied under George Lance. He also studied in Antwerp for two years with Baron Wappers. He eventually returned to Bath and specialised in painting fruit, vegetables, meat and dead game. He occasionally included figures, mostly portraits of his wife and son. He exhibited only a few works at the Royal Academy and British Institute, preferring the Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street, where he exhibited 38 works. At the height of his success he died suddenly at the age of 47. His wife, Mary Ann Rosenberg, whom he married in 1850, was a flower painter
