W J Steggles 1908-1997

Welcome to this site which is dedicated to the memory of Walter J Steggles. The aim of this site is to provide an online resource to retrospectively show his life's work. I hope you enjoy your visit and if you would like to see more of his work and hear about upcoming events please go to the login page.

The contents of this site represents something of a "Work in Progress" and over the coming weeks and months I shall be adding text and images as things develop. Wally was a prolific artist who by his own admission couldn't stop painting! At the height of his popularity and that of the East London Group both he and his brother Harold held down full time jobs in the city in London but still found sufficient time to produce numerous pieces for exhibition at their annual shows at the famous Lefevre Gallery. In Walter's case in one year in particular, 1931, he produced 21 pictures for Lefevre between 8th of January and 20th October.

As I have mentioned, Walter was a prolific artist and I have included a few "Examples of Wally's Work" to give visitors a feel for what he produced. There is a full slideshow of his work that is only available to members of this site which displays a full range of his work so if you would like to see more please follow the links on this page to the "Login" page. Indivuals who register as members will gain access to the slideshow and other features that are currently under development and will also receive periodic e-mails from the site detailing upcoming events like the proposed "Retrospective Exhibition" at a prestigious West End Gallery and also the soon to be announced book launch of David Buckman's new book "From Bow to Biennale" about the Group. This is now available to order from Francis Boutle & Co. For a link to their site please see the next page.
