William Henry Mander was born in Aston, Birmingham in 1846 to William and Mary Mander. The family lived at Little Barr Street and later Great Barr Street, close to the Digbeth and Birmingham canals where his father worked as a fender maker. In 1870, he married Mary Ann Mooney and together they lived at St Andrews Street, Birmingham and later at 36 Watery Lane. He initially worked as a carver and gilder, becoming a master craftsman with a fairly successful business.

He also travelled around painting views of the Lledr and Conwy Valleys. By 1904, he had returned to the Birmingham area where he lived in Bournville.

Mander’s landscapes have great atmosphere about them and with his use of a rich palette, never fail to impress.
 
His works are represented in a number of public collections including the Amgueddfa Ceredigion Museum, Bradfo...
