(1860 - 1942)

Influenced by both Constable and Turner, Wilson Steer, like his friend Sickert, made a significant contribution to British Impressionism epitomised, for example, in his painting 'Girls Running: Walberswick Pier' now at the Tate.
For a period Wilson Steer ran a school of painting at Walberswick but he taught for a long time at the Salde alongside Henry Tonks and others. As such he had a huge influence on the younger crop of painters coming through including for example; Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash and Anna Airy.
