Alfred Walsh


Alfred Wilson Walsh (1859-1916) grew up in Dunedin, where he was employed as a draughtsman before studying art seriously. In 1886 he was appointed to the Canterbury School of Art, where he taught for 24 years. His favourite location for painting was the Kaikoura coast, north of Christchurch, though in later life he moved to Auckland. He exhibited widely throughout New Zealand in his lifetime and is represented in all the major galleries.
