Overview

But this morning the place is all agog, and so transformed that it hardly knows itself.

Meet the Author

Westall was born in Hertford, England, but grew up in London, mostly Sydenham and Hampstead. The son of brewery manager Benjamin Westall and his second wife Martha nee Harbord, William Westall had four step-siblings, the eldest of whom, Richard Westall, was a reputable painter and illustrator. William was interested in painting from a young age; Rienitz and Rienitz (1963) suggest that he looked up to his half-brother, and was ambitious to follow in his footsteps. There is evidence to suggest that Westall's parents did not support this career choice; however Richard became head of the family upon the death of Benjamin Westall in March 1794, and must have approved Westall's artistic ambitions, as from that time forward William Westall was given a thorough art education. At the age of sixteen he won a silver palette in a competition run by the Society of Artists, and at eighteen was enrolled at the prestigious Royal Academy.
