William Henry Mander was one of the principle artists of late 19th century Birmingham School of landscape artists. Like many of his contemporaries he became fascinated by the wild beauty of North Wales and lived there from 1899 to 1906.
Between 1881 and 1914, Mander exhibited 122 works at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, 7 paintings at the Royal Cambrian Academy, and 14 at the Royal Hibernian Academy.
