Walter Dendy Sadler (1854-1923) was born in Dorking and brought up in Horsham, where he showed a talent for drawing. At age 16 he decided to become a painter and enrolled for two years at Heatherly's School of Art in London, and later studied in Germany under W. Simmler. He exhibited at the Dudley Gallery from 1872 and at the Royal Academy from 1873 through to the 1890s. He painted contemporary people in domestic and daily life pursuits, and although sometimes criticized for his attention to background detail as detracting from the subjects of his pictures, Sadler gives some of the best studies of Victorian interiors.
