Albert William Ayling (1829-1905)
Born in Conway, North Wales
few sources state his birth year as 1853)
He exhibited 128 works at The Royal Collage of Art, 4 works at The Royal Academy, 4 Watercolours at The Royal Institute of painters in Watercolour as well as works at The Royal Society of Arts and at other provincial galleries and exhibitions.

He produced a number of Oil Paintings but the majority of his work was in Watercolour. Many of his works were based on rural farming scenes and landscapes although he is known to have painted a number of portraits or studies of people. His portraits in watercolour were often built upon pencil sketches with pencil lines detected below the watercolour.

He signed his works A.W. Ayling but rarely attributed a date and some were without a title. One of his watercolours was of a 'Portrait of a Young Boy' and was dated 1880.

Other works have included:
'Lady seated Three Quarter Length Wearing a White Bonnet'
'Portrait Of A Young Woman'
'Portrait of Miss Le Page'
'Portrait Of A Spanish Girl'
'Portrait Of A Young Girl'
