Wyllie, William Lionel

English painter William Lionel Wyllie (1851-1931) specialized in maritime themes which he would execute beautifully in oils or watercolors. His love of the sea was drawn from his time spent sailing around Europe in a huff after two of his early pieces were refused by the Royal Academy. He married Marion Amy Carew in 1879, and the two of them had nine children together, five of which were buried before the two finally passed in the 1930s.
